Saham Toney Neighbourhood Plan

24th June 2020

As part of my ongoing work to help communities in Mid Norfolk create their own Neighbourhood Plans, I am delighted to promote the efforts of Saham Toney Parish Council.

Many hours of tireless community work have gone into producing the Plan and, even in these difficult times, the hard work continues.

Today (Wednesday 24th June 2020), the Parish Council has formally submitted their pre-submission of the Plan. As a result, the next stage of consultation on the Plan has begun today and will run until Friday 14th August 2020.

The consultation is being carried out to:

  1. Ensure that there is appropriate and adequate opportunity for the Strategic Environmental Assessment process to influence the development of the Plan prior to its full submission;
  1. To allow review and comment of policies that have been added or updated since the previous consultation (August-October 2019); and
  1. To make available additional documents in support of the Plan, that have been prepared as a result of new studies carried out since the previous consultation.

The pre-submission consists of the Neighbourhood Plan itself and eighteen supporting documents. Full details can be found: here

At the same time, the Parish Council are undertaking consultation on the Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Plan. Full details can be found: here

The Neighbourhood Plan is a hugely important piece of work for the community – helping to determine how they would like the village to grow over the next two decades. I would encourage everyone associated with the village to take the time to look over the documents and share their views as part of the consultation.
