Making Long Stratton the best place
to live, work and play anywhere in the UK
ABOUT THE PLAN
The Long Stratton Neighbourhood Plan will be a document created by local people that sets out planning policy for where you live. It helps you protect the things you care about in your community, as well as make improvements to the local area. For example, it can set out how buildings should look, and for what they can be used. It can also help to encourage the kind of development of which you would like to see more.
A neighbourhood plan carries the same legal weight as plans drawn up by your local council. South Norfolk Council must follow what’s in your neighbourhood plan when making decisions about planning applications in your area.

Neighbourhood Plan Update
The Plan has been subject to an independent examination and the final report was received on the 5th July 2021. The examiner has recommended that the plan, once modified with the recommended changes, proceeds to referendum. You can see a copy of the report by clicking on the link below. South Norfolk Council will shortly be considering the recommendations detailed in the report and making a decision on whether the Plan should proceed to referendum.
“Long Stratton village will grow into a town, but a village feel will be retained. Long Stratton will keep its close links to the surrounding countryside and the characterful feel of the enclosed historic centre will be strengthened not just as a result of reduced through-traffic but due to physical improvements which can take place once the by-pass has been built.
Our strong sense of place in the Neighbourhood Plan area will grow as the new development is designed sensitively and reflect Long Stratton and Tharston’s existing characteristics. Pedestrian and cycle access between existing estates and the shops, services and areas of employment will be improved whilst the new development will be designed to encompass pedestrian and cycle access to the town centre."
