Cressing Neighbourhood Plan

DAC Planning supported the production of the Cressing Parish Neighbourhood Plan from 2017 to 2019. 


DAC Planning advised the Cressing Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group on best practice and procedure throughout all stages of plan preparation. Tasks included:

Baseline Scoping Report

We brought together existing sources of evidence, information and consultation findings, together with a project plan, to inform the production of the Draft Neighbourhood Plan.

Housing Strategy Report

We produced a Housing Strategy Report and an Open Countryside Buffer Report for the Draft Neighbourhood Plan’s evidence base. 

Preparing Statements and Draft Plan

We worked with the Steering Group to prepare the Consultation Statement, Basic Conditions Statement and Draft Neighbourhood Plan.


The draft Neighbourhood Plan was submitted for examination and ‘made’ in February 2020, becoming the second made Neighbourhood Plan in Braintree District.

"David Coleman and his colleague have had extensive experience of local government planning and this is evident in the quality of the work that he has produced for us since becoming involved in our project towards the end of 2016. We have no hesitation in recommending the services of DAC Planning to any group which is attempting the task of putting together a Neighbourhood Plan.”
