Neighbourhood planning enables local communities to create a shared vision, or plan, for their area. It enables us to choose where we want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have our say on what the buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.
‘Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community’ (DCLG, 2014)
Diss is working in partnership with the six local parishes of Burston and Shimpling, Brome and Oakley, Palgrave, Roydon, Scole and Stuston to create a joint Neighbourhood Plan that will benefit all of us.
On the South Norfolk Council website you can find out about the need for planning permission and building regulations, how to submit an application and how applications are determined.
You can also find information about considerations which affect the outcome of a planning application including planning policies, conservation areas and listed buildings and Tree Preservation Orders.
