Ardleigh Neighbourhood Plan

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a way for communities, in this case Ardleigh Parish Council, to take a proactive approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work. Once ‘made’ (adopted) a Neighbourhood Plan has the same legal status as the district wide Local Plan and will be used alongside the Local Plan in deciding planning applications that fall within its area.
