Welcome to the Copdock and Washbrook Neighbourhood Planning website. The material on this website has been provided by the Copdock and Washbrook Neighbourhood Steering Group on behalf of the Parish Council.
A Neighbourhood Plan (sometimes called a Neighbourhood Development Plan) is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. It can be used to:
* Develop a shared vision for your neighbourhood.
* Choose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built.
*Identify and protect important local green spaces.
* Influence what new buildings should look like.
