Neighbourhood Plan


Has passed the 

Independent Examination...

We are vey pleased to report that the Neighourhood Plan has successfully passed its examination with only minor changes recommended by the examiner.

Once the Plan has been updated with the agreed changes you will be able to download a Referendum Version from the Documents page.

What Happens Next?

There will be a referendum for the residents of Old Catton.

The referendum will give local residents the final say on  the  planning  policies  in the Old Catton Neighbourhood Plan, these include the protection of open spaces, better footpaths, road safety and junction improvements and design improvements for new homes.

If the Neighbourhood Plan passes the referendum it will:

  •  shape   the future  of   Old Catton  for  the next 20 years by providing  a framework to guide future development  and planning policies  to determine future planning applications; and 
  • bring extra funding to be spent on improving the facilties in Old Catton.
