A Neighbourhood Plan is a way for communities to take a proactive approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work. Once ‘made’ (adopted) a Neighbourhood Plan has the same legal status as the district wide Local Plan, and alongside the Local Plan will be used in deciding planning applications that fall within its area. Further information is available on our website: The Gamlingay Neighbourhood Plan sets out a range of planning policies which cover many issues that are considered important to the local community. We look forward to receiving your comments on the Gamlingay Neighbourhood Plan. Receiving future updates You can opt-in or opt-out of receiving future mailings in relation to public consultations or notifications on planning policy documents by logging in to the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service consultation database and choosing the ‘topics’ that you would like future mailings about. When you log in, you will find the list of ‘topics’ under ‘My Details’. You can also find our privacy notice on the Council’s website via the above link.
