Submission for the Examination in Public
- NHDC Draft Local Plan
At the Ickleford Parish Council meeting on 4 January, our submission and supporting appendices for the Ickleford and Lower Stondon session of the Examination in Public (EiP) were reviewed and approved. These have been sent to the Inspector.

Your Parish Council believes that there are significant flaws in the NHDC Local Plan as it relates to our village and its immediate surroundings. The submission builds on the issues raised in our response to the initial consultation, bringing to the Inspector’s attention related, additional material. This is supported by detailed, associated data in the appendices.

Our submission also lists carefully considered requests to make the Plan sound.

Further information about the Examination, including supporting documents, can be found on the NHDC website.

The Ickleford Neighbourhood Plan – your chance to help shape the future of your village
The Parish Council believes that it would be a promising idea to create a Neighbourhood Plan to help shape the future of our village, and we are asking for your help to do so. The Plan will be sponsored and supported by Ickleford Parish Council, but needs to be driven by a team made up from the wider village community.  It will be the team’s responsibility to create the Vision, Objectives and Policies which make up the Plan.
Further information can be found here, and please do contact Cllr Miles Maxwell to find out more
