A public consultation has been launched on the document, which aims to give local communities greater influence on planning decisions in their area.

The plan, which was submitted to Fenland Council in November, is the first of its kind in the district.

A consultation began on Monday and residents have until February 20 to participate. The plan will then undergo an independent assessment, before a local referendum determines whether it is adopted or not.

If residents back it, the district council will have to take the plan into consideration when considering planning applications in March.

Printed copies can also be viewed at Fenland Hall in County Road, the Fenland @ your service shop in Broad Street and March Town Hall.
