Neighbourhood Plan

Dickleburgh and Rushall PC received notice from South Norfolk Council that, after the initial consultation, the proposal to develop a Dickeburgh and Rushall Neighbourhood Plan including all land areas and settlements within the parish boundary was acceptable. We can now start to develop our own neighbourhood plan reflecting our concerns, wants and needs.

We hope to be able to call a meeting with the South Norfolk Council team, responsible for neighbourhood plans, to enable members of the D&R NP team and community to discuss and understand the ramifications, scope and possibilities.

Please send us pictures with a very short commentary describing the view, or the subject matter and importantly where the picture was taken from. See the Neighbourhood Plan page for more information.

Please do continue to share ideas via email or through meetings. The more ideas, discussion and even argument we have the better the final plan will be.
