Parish-tier councils, or other organisations, can take the lead in creating neighbourhood development plans, community plans and orders for planning in their area. We will help to create the plans, and make decisions at key stages.

Danbury Parish Council has developed a draft Neighbourhood Plan for the parish and formally submitted it to us. 

It covers the whole of the parish, and includes planning policies on the environment, village character, development, and open space. Once adopted, it will become part of Chelmsford’s Local Plan. 

Consultation on the draft Danbury Neighbourhood Plan has now closed, but you can still read the submission documents.

There are also some evidence documents which provide helpful background information, and which were used to inform the draft Neighbourhood Plan.

These are listed in the Supporting Information Section of the Danbury NP Submission Plan, and you can find them on the Danbury Neighbourhood Plan Submission web page.

What happens next

We will send all the submission documents and comments to an independent examiner. They will decide whether the Danbury Neighbourhood Plan should proceed to referendum. If we do hold a public referendum in the area covered by the Plan, and more than 50% vote ‘yes’, we will adopt it.

We will publish all comments we receive on our Consultation Portal, in accordance with our privacy policy. You can find out more about how to use the consultation portal.
