The Ashdon Neighbourhood Plan is being compiled by local residents and the Parish Council. It establishes a vision for the evolution and long-term sustainability of Ashdon Parish and village. The plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally.

The Parish of Ashdon is a small rural community set in rolling open countryside on the Essex Cambridgeshire border. It is a uniquely situated village with two historic cores, namely the primary centre grouped around the Rose and Crown pub and secondly the smaller settlement of Church End focused around the Grade I All Saints Church.
