Stonham Aspal Parish Council News – Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)

The Parish Council is considering supporting the creation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for Stonham Aspal.

A NDP can be a valuable tool, bringing real benefits to the parish by making the opinions of residents known. A NDP includes topics such as housing, commerce, the economy, transport and the environnment to name a few. There is a lot of information available online and can easily be found by searching for ‘’Neighbourhood Development Plans’.

As you can imagine, producing an NDP is a time consuming business and something the Parish Council cannot take on by themselves. Throughout Suffolk, local town and parishes have produced their own NDP relying heavily on local volunteers to research, plan and finally produce the report.

Should you wish to know more or even consider volunteering to join the Stonham Aspal NDP committee, please join us at the Parish Council meeting in October (details available on when we shall be discussing the opportunity and gauging the enthusiasm to commence this project.
