What is a neighbourhood plan?

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.  It enables us to choose where we want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have our say on what they should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.

Diss is working in partnership with seven local parishes to create a joint Neighbourhood Plan that will benefit all of us. The aim is to ensure that future development has a positive outcome for our communities. Once adopted, the Neighbourhood Plan would become the main planning policy document against which all future planning applications in the area would be considered.
