The Neighbourhood Plan

About this Neighbourhood Plan

The Town Council is responsible for preparing the Neighbourhood Plan for Sturminster Newton.

The Town Council appointed a Steering Group to direct the project, facilitate its successful completion, help ensure collaboration with interested parties from every part of the community, and ensure consultations attracted the widest possible audiences. A project manager engaged experts and members of the community, many of whom had knowledge and special interest in specific themes or topics. These groups, in consultation with the wider community, have worked together for over three years to produce this Plan.

The Sturminster Newton Neighbourhood Plan will guide development in the town and its surrounding area until 2031 based on the aspirations of the community.
