Neighbourhood Area consultation

Between 5 November 2015 and 3rd December 2015, Forest Heath District Council carried out a consultation. This followed an application by Newmarket Town Council to identify an area they feel should be covered by a future neighbourhood plan.

The area proposed by Newmarket Town Council, for neighbourhood planning purposes, is the whole of the town area with the only exception being the removal of Exning Cemetery off Exning Road.

As part of the application process, Newmarket Town Council has produced a map of the proposed neighbourhood area and a supporting statement reasoning why they have chosen the area to be covered. These documents can be viewed below:
