Making of the Neighbourhood Plan

Following a public referendum on Thursday 6 May 2021, the Ryburgh Neighbourhood Plan was brought into legal force and now forms part of the statutory Development Plan for North Norfolk. Decisions on planning applications in the Ryburgh Neighbourhood Area (the parish) are made following policies in the Ryburgh Neighbourhood Plan and wider Development Plan unless material considerations suggest otherwise.
