Rackheath Neighbourhood Plan

Community engagement and consultation

In order for the Neighbourhood Plan to be written, there needs to be extensive engagement and consultation with the local community, residents and businesses.  

There are a number of events that are coming up.  Please come along, view your local area information and give the steering group your views.


November 2016 - Consultation Responses (Pre-Submission)

In December 2016 we carried out a 6 week consultation with the Rackheath Community to ensure that the Neighbourhood Plan represented the requirements and needs of our community.  During this consultation we received feedback via response forms from the formal events held on as well as online survey feedback.
