Help us shape the future of the town – housing needs consultation

During September and October 2020, we asked for feedback on the draft vision and objectives for our neighbourhood plan and also on possible planning policy themes and community actions. Background to the neighbourhood planning process is available on our website  Thank you to everyone that responded to the consultation.  We are currently considering all of the comments.


We now need your feedback on how housing matters should be addressed within our plan. We could not include this as part of the last consultation as we were waiting for the results of further work.  This initial housing work is currently awaiting signing off by Locality following a recent Government announcement that proposes the formula used to allocate targets for English Planning Authorities be revised.


  • You can provide your thoughts on the questions set out within the consultation document that is being delivered to every door in the Newbiggin Parish, using the online form that is available on the below link. Alternatively, you can send us your comments in writing by:


Comments should be received by 22 January 2021.
