Welcome to the Sutton Neighbourhood Plan website. Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.
Do you want to have a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built or what new buildings should look like? Maybe you want to protect and enhance our local High Street, choose where new businesses should be located, or protect our local green spaces for generations to enjoy in years to come?
The Sutton Neighbourhood Plan covers the whole of the parish of Sutton, the village itself and surrounding countryside including Sutton Gault and a section of the Ouse Washes. You can find more details about the Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan on the About Us page.
This website is intended to provide Sutton residents with details of the Neighbourhood Plan process, results from community engagement activities and the latest status of the plan proposals. Use the links at the top of this page to explore more details.
At the Parish Council meeting on 27 November 2018 the updated Draft Neighbourhood Plan was formally approved for submission for Independent Examination. The plan together with supporting documents were submitted to East Cambridgeshire District Council the following day and confirmation has been received that the plan then meets the statutory requirements and can therefore proceed to examination. This first step of the examination process was a public consultation organised by the district council which closed on 17 January 2019. The plan is now being examined by the Independent Examiner.
Here is the Sutton Neighbourhood Submission Plan November 2018, the full set of submission documents can be found on the East Cambridgeshire District Council website at https://www.eastcambs.gov.uk/local-development-framework/sutton-neighbourhood-plan.
