NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN - We are there!
At the January Parish Council meeting the Council approved the submission of our Plan Draft 6.2 to Babergh District Council (

Babergh will be organising a 6 week consultation process 18 January to 1 March 2016. Watch out for their posters requesting your comments and stating that the Plan can be viewed at Planning Reception, Corks Lane, Hadleigh; Fountain House Tea Room East Bergholt or by arrangement with the Parish Clerk (01206 298692). All comments are welcome but if you support our Plan please submit a comment to that effect.
