Welcome to the DDNP!


Here's where you can find out more about what's involved in pulling together a Neighbourhood Plan, and why Diss Town Council and six of its neighbouring parish councils are working together with local communities to shape development in the years to come and to deliver the vision for the DDNP:

A vibrant community around a thriving market town

The site is easy to navigate, just click on the menu running along the top of the page for general updates, or hover to see different pages in that section.  The 'NEWS' section is a good place to start as it links into other pages on the site. You can also get to the results of the two consultations from this part of the site. 


If you are interested in a specific parish, then click in the green bar just above to read what's been happening. 

The Plan is being developed by a steering group of representatives from each of the seven parishes. We meet monthly, online for the last year or so, and have been working hard with the help of local volunteers to pull together one of the most complex neighbourhood plans undertaken in the UK. 


Work started several years ago, and 2020 was a year of great progress for the Plan.  There is a wealth of information on this site and 2021 promises to be another busy year for the steering group so keep an eye on this site, and the DDNP facebook page for our regular updates.

We are continuing to meet monthly - to the right is a snapshot of some of the steering group members at a recent Zoom meeting and once restrictions lift, we will be planning a series of small public events to help promote the Plan and answer questions. 

Thanks again for visiting - we update this site regularly and if you have a question, please use the contact button top right to get in touch with the project officer.
