The East Stour Village Plan Committee was set up by the Parish Council in 2010. A two-part Open Day on the proposed Plan was held in the Village Hall on 11 May 2011. Following the Open Day, a questionnaire was compiled and delivered to every one of the 276 households, with 202 completed forms returned.

The Village Action Plan (VAP) got underway in January 2013 and 25 Actions were achieved. For more details about the review, the achievements and the financial statement, see the following:
