Neighbourhood Plan

A Neighbourhood Plan is a framework developed by the community i.e. the residents and businesses of Ilminster, to guide the future development of the town. An approved Neighbourhood Plan would run alongside the policies contained in the South Somerset Local Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework.

This is an opportunity for people who live and work in Ilminster to have their say in the future of the town.
