In early 2016 Gt Abington Parish Council held an open meeting to gain feedback on a consultation paper which proposed the development of a special planning policy for the former Land Settlement Association estate.
The meeting voted in favour of the initiative and a Parish Council Working Group was established to progress the work.
The Parish Council then sought feedback from South Cambs District Council (SCDC) on the development of a policy. SCDC were in favour of the development of a neighbourhood plan (NP) and have supported it's development.
On March 31st 2017 a consultation event was held at the village institute. At this event the character assessment and draft policy document was available for all attending to take away with a feedback form. The feedback collated will help to shape the next draft of the poicy before it is submitted to South Cambs District Council. (please see the attached documents)
