Fontmell Magna Neighbourhood Plan Review
Pre-Submission Consultation, 12 February - 31 March 2024

Closing date: 31 March 2024

The Fontmell Magna Neighbourhood Plan was approved in 2018. The Parish is required to update the plan periodically, and to consult all households on any proposed changes, so that the plan is current, relevant for future planning decisions, and reflects the views of the residents.

The Parish Council recently reviewed the 2018 plan and decided that no major changes were needed. Some minor changes are proposed, for instance to note the closure of the Fontmell Surgery, and to clarify some policies, particularly with regard to building design and road access. The proposed changes to the plan are summarised below and we need your opinion on these changes before they are finalised.

There will be an open morning in the Village Hall on Saturday 16th March 10am-1pm, when you can view the proposed changes to the plan and ask questions. Copies of the updated plan are available in the Village Hall, the Village Shop, The Village Pub, the Church and the School. Alternatively, you can read the proposed updated Neighbourhood plan and background documents on the Parish Council’s website at: (opens in new window)

According to, “Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.”
