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.
