Sydenham Neighbourhood Plan

Sydenham Parish Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan. The process empowers local communities to help direct and shape the way their area grows and develops into the future. A neighbourhood plan will form part of the development plan, which helps to determine planning applications. 

What’s Happening Now? 

Sydenham Neighbourhood Area was formally designated on 2 March 2018. 

The parish council recently ran the statutory pre-submission consultation on the draft plan. The local community and statutory consultees were invited to offer their comments on the draft neighbourhood plan. The parish council are reviewing comments received and making changes to the draft plan before formally submitting it to the district council.

Once the plan has been submitted, the district council will organise a further six-week publicity period, inviting comments from the public and statutory consultees.  All documents and comments received are then submitted for independent examination.

If you want to get involved in the process, please contact your Parish Council. More information on the process is available on our Neighbourhood Planning home page.

If you would like to discuss neighbourhood planning with a member of the team, please call us on 01235 422600 or email
