What is the Ilminster Neighbourhood Plan (INP)?

The INP is a community-led, land-based plan, which will guide future development, regeneration and conservation within the town from adoption to 2036.


Development of the Ilminster Neigbourhood Plan
The INP boundary was designated by South Somerset District Council (SSDC) on 1 June 2017 and follows the Parish boundary.
Ilminster Town Council is the qualifying body for leading the INP and in January 2019, the INP Development Group was established as a sub-committee to lead the preparation of the Plan. This group includes local residents, businesses and Town Councillors. The Ilminster Town Council approved the INP on 23 March 2021 and agreed for it to go to consultation in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations.


The INP is your Plan
The INP provides the community of Ilminster with an opportunity to influence and determine the future development of the parish of Ilminster. This pre-submission consultation draft is a call to action to everyone who lives, works or has an interest in Ilminster, to read the Plan and provide feedback. When adopted, the INP enables people of Ilminster to have a direct input into the future development of its parish, and planners and developers must consider the INP when examining new development proposals.
