Neighbourhood Planning

Self Build


If you are interested in Self-Build Housing or Custom-Build Housing in Morland parish please get in touch.



The Government is promoting custom-build and self-build housing as a way of helping meet the housing crisis.


If you think this might suit you, your family or the parish generally, please get in touch to discuss if the new Neighbourhood Plan

can help. Or, if you are unsuitably housed in any way, we also want to know what other housing needs there are in the parish.

Consultant for the purposes of evidencing the Neighbourhood Plan.

Morland Parish Council voted recently to pursue the development of a Neighbourhood Plan.


Such plans have been around for a while, they are broadly a document designed to identify aspects of planning for the economic health and wellbeing of villages and towns. Their specific function is around housing needs, so identifying land and landowners willing perhaps to consider their plot as a designated area for future development is paramount.


In addition to this, other aspects of village life are considered, for example, landscape protection, business support and maximising the general amenity of Morland for residents and tourists alike.


There is government funding available to help in the production of the plan and this covers the cost of employing an experienced author. If we do not do our own neighbourhood plan, it is possible that development could be imposed on the village, this is the main reason the Parish Council has decided to take on this substantial project.


However, to compile a plan that covers all interests of the residents of Morland, means everyone should and must have their say in its production and that is why we are mentioning it now.


Soon, the group responsible for the neighbourhood plan will be creating opportunities for involvement, for sharing ideas and making contributions, this may be via a survey or gatherings or both, we’ve yet to work all that out, this is just to let you know, a neighbourhood plan is on its way.
