    What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

    A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led planning policy document to guide future development in the parish.  It can include policies about the use and development of land and buildings and types of development over the next 20 years . It may contain aspirations for improving the area or providing new facilities.

    A Neighbourhood Plan will become part of the Local Development Plan for the area.  It will not be able to change the policies or block development allocations in the Greater Norwich Local Plan but will be able to influence future GNLP reviews.

    Neighbourhood plans cannot STOP development, but they can help to SHAPE it as they are used to determine planning applications.

    How is the Community Involved?

    A Neighbourhood Plan is written with the community, so it contains the key issues that are important to residents and businesses.  There will be several opportunities for ideas and views of the community to be given through events and formal consultations.  When the Neighbourhood Plan has reached completion, there will be a referendum to decide if it is adopted.

    Why does Hingham need a Neighbourhood Plan?

    A Neighbourhood Plan will make a difference to the future of Hingham.  It gives the community a stronger voice on planning matters, types of development and future allocations of land for development.

    It can help to identify what facilities the community would like and what they want to see protected.

    If a Neighbourhood Plan is in place a greater proportion of the Community Infrastructure Levy fund is made available to the parish so there is more money available for community infrastructure projects.
