A public consultation is now under way into the March Neighbourhood Plan, which is the first to be drawn up in Fenland.

The proposed plan is now subject to a six-week consultation that runs until Monday, February 20. It will then be submitted for independent examination and a local referendum.

Neighbourhood Plans are a tool introduced by the Government to give local communities more power to influence planning decisions in their area.
