Ingatestone & Fryerning Neighbourhood Plan update

The Ingatestone & Fryerning Neighbourhood Plan was formally submitted to Brentwood Borough Council in November 2021. Since then, the neighbourhood plan was consulted on between December 2021 and March 2022 and submitted to an Independent Planning Inspector for examination.

The neighbourhood plan sets out additional policy requirements for any development proposal within the parish.

On June 16, Brentwood Borough Council and Ingatestone & Fryerning Parish Council were notified that the Ingatestone & Fryerning Neighbourhood Plan had been approved to proceed to the referendum stage provided the required modifications were made.

All residents who reside within the Ingatestone & Fryerning parish and are currently registered to vote will be receiving a polling card to vote on whether the neighbourhood plan should be adopted. This process is referred to as a referendum.

The referendum will commence on June 30 and polling stations open on August 4. Residents will be able to see more information on their poll cards.

Details about the neighbourhood plan can be viewed on both the parish council and Brentwood Borough Council websites via the links below.
