Neighbourhood Plan

Loddon and Chedgrave are producing a Neighbourhood Plan and are looking for interested people who would like to play a part in shaping the future development in the community.


"A Neighbourhood Plan is written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place." (

A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led document for guiding the future development of an area.   

The Loddon and Chedgrave Neighbourhood Plan will be a document created by local people that sets out planning policy for the two parishes. It will help protect things you care about in our community, as well as make improvements to the local area. For example, it can set out how buildings should look, and for what they can be used. It can also help to encourage the kind of development local people would like and the services, facilities and employment opportunities needed for the future.

​A neighbourhood plan carries the same legal weight as plans drawn up by local planning authorities; South Norfolk Council must follow what’s in the finished neighbourhood plan when making decisions about planning applications in Loddon and Chedgrave.
