Sturminster Newton Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted
Our Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to North Dorset District Council in November 2017. The Council will now review our Plan and undertake their own consultation prior to external examination in 2018.

You can view a paper copy of the Plan at the Town Council Office between 9.30am and 12.30pm, Monday to Friday.
Once North Dorset District Council have completed their required steps and have approved the Plan in principle they will appoint an Independent Examiner. The final stage will be a referendum in 2018 when every resident in the Plan Area will be asked "Do you want North Dorset District Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Sturminster Newton to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"
