The launch event for the current Mepal Community Led Plan (CLP) took place in October 2017 and the final report was distributed to all households in Mepal in February 2019. A number of projects and plans were identified in the CLP but the planned 2020 Community drop had to be postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
We received number of requests from Parishioners over the last 12 months, particularly in regards to how the Parish Council can protect the village from large housing developments in future after successfully opposing the Brick Lane development of 55 houses. The Parish Council therefore applied for grant funding and have engaged a consultant and have started a project to publish a Mepal Neighbourhood Plan before the end of this financial year. This will be very challenging and we would request help form the community to make sure that our plan is as good as possible to help protect and improve our lovely village.
This page will be updated as we progress through the process – the first step is the Questionnaire that is within the September/October issue of the Mepal Matters Newsletter and is now also be available online. Please try to fill this in as your first act of assistance in the development of the plan.
