Examples of plans which have been 'made':

Tilney All Saints, West Norfolk

This Neighbourhood Plan has a key focus on safeguarding the very distinctive, local character of the area, whilst accommodating future change and growth. It passed referendum in July 2021. 


"Tilney All Saints cannot thank Collective Community Planning (CCP) enough for guiding us to the development of a successful Neighbourhood Plan. The experience of CCP, depth of knowledge, access to information and being very approachable were invaluable to Tilney All Saints producing a Neighbourhood Plan that survived the scrutiny of both a Health Check and Examination before being accepted by Tilney All Saints villagers and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.  Even after CCP had completed the period of consultation they did not walk away but were always there at the end of a phone if we had any minor queries with our Neighbourhood Plan. We would highly recommend Collective Community Planning as a very safe pair of hands to guide one through the minefield that is neighbourhood planning." Robert Sloan, TAS NP

Poringland, South Norfolk

Poringland has experienced a lot of growth in the last 5 years. The plan aims to influence future development including the level and phasing of this in line with infrastructure improvements. We worked with Parker Planning Services on this plan. It passed referendum in July 2021. 

Mulbarton, South Norfolk

This plan focuses on conserving the special characteristics of Mulbarton, which is characterised by a large common, a conservation area and important habitat for wildlife. It passed referendum in December 2015. We supported this plan when working as Small Fish. 

"Mark Thompson of CCP has been the key player in advising and helping to draft two neighbourhood plans that I have been involved with as Chair and Vice Chair of the organising committee. Mark’s advice has been thoughtful and clear, ensuring the documents met the aspirations of the parish and also met the essential tests to ensure compliance with planning law. Both achieved over 90% voter support in referendum and are now adopted as part of the local planning framework. His style is encouraging and supportive but also sufficiently challenging to ensure a rigorous approach"  John Joyce, Poringland & Mulbarton Neighbourhood Plans

Upwell, west Norfolk

The Upwell plan has a strong focus on delivering housing to meet local need. It allocates 5 sites for housing development, for approximately 47 homes. One of the allocated sites is owned by the Parish Council and another will help deliver much needed parking for the village hall. It passed referendum in July 2021. 


Snettisham, west Norfolk

Snettisham developed a Neighbourhood Plan as they wanted to have greater influence over how much and where development was delivered in their community. We supported them by undertaking a healthcheck on their draft plan, helping with the submission version and supporting statements. This was a Small Fish. It passed referendum in November 2018.
