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 helps determine where new homes, shops and offices can be built, what those new buildings will look like, and what infrastructure should be provided to meet their community’s needs, in alignment with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

The Thorpe St Andrew Town Council Neighbourhood Plan Working Group have been developing the Neighbourhood Plan since 2017. In early 2024 the plan was finalised and approved for referendum. The date for this will be Thursday 2nd May 2024.

The Neighbourhood Plan outlines the vision and objectives for Thorpe St Andrew, presented in the form of individual policies, and can be viewed below.  If you are having trouble accessing the online documents, please email neighbourhoodplan@thorpestandrew-tc.gov.uk or call 01603 701048
