Newmarket neighbourhood area designation

On 15 June 2018 the Portfolio Holder for Planning and Growth formally designated an amendment the Newmarket Neighbourhood Area following the receipt of Newmarket Town Council's consent. This amended designation was undertaken in conjunction with an application to designate a Neighbourhood Area for the parish of Exning. This supersedes the Newmarket Area Designation made 23 December 2015.

On 23 December 2015 the Portfolio Holder for Planning and Growth formally designated the original and superseded Newmarket Neighbourhood Area.

The original and superseded area designation statement, map and responses to the consultation can be found below:

Neighbourhood Area consultation

Between 5 November 2015 and 3rd December 2015, we 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:
