Neighbourhood Plan

The Beyton Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council and is now available for consultation. Please go to www.midsuffolk.gov.uk/BeytonNP for more details.


This Regulation 16 consultation stage provides a final opportunity for interested parties to comment on our Plan prior it being submitted for formal examination.


If our Plan is found to be acceptable (the Examiner may have to make further changes for this to happen) it will then go to referendum where people living in the parish will have the opportunity to vote for the plan.
