Neighbourhood Planning in Great Barton

Great Barton neighbourhood area designation

Due to change in the Great Barton Parish boundary following a community governance review, On 10 January 2019, Great Barton Parish Council submitted a new application to define the revised boundary of their Neighbourhood Plan. The regulations regarding neighbourhood area applications have changed and there is no longer a requirement for publicity if the application is for the whole parish area - as it is in this instance.

Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), the council confirmed the designated area on 14 January 2019.

A designation statement to this effect, a copy of the application and supporting information and a map identifying the neighbourhood area can be viewed below (which supersedes the previous area designation approved in June 2016):


On 16 June 2016, the Portfolio Holder for Planning and Growth formally designated the Great Barton Neighbourhood Area.

The area designation statement, map and responses to the consultation can be found below:


Neighbourhood Area consultation

Between 10 May and 8 June 2016, we undertook a consultation following an application by Great Barton Parish Council to identify the area they felt should be covered by a future neighbourhood plan.

As part of the application process, Great Barton Parish 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:
