Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish Council is looking for your views on implementing a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish. Please complete our very short online survey here by 31 October 2021.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

It’s an important and powerful tool that gives communities like ours statutory (legal) powers to help decide how their area develops.

In very simple terms, a neighbourhood plan is:

  • A set of planning policies for the parish which are used to help decide on planning applications
  • Written by you, the people who know and love the area, rather than the local planning authority
  • A legal measure to help the community to get the right types of development in the right place

A Neighbourhood Plan is community-led – it’s researched, written and voted on by the people who live in the community – you.

A Neighbourhood Plan has to, by law, engage with the whole community, including:

  • all residents in the parish local businesses in the parish
  • community groups and organisations
  • landowners
  • schools and educational establishments

There’s a huge amount of talent within our parish and everyone can be involved in developing a Neighbourhood Plan. You can learn much more at the Neighbourhood Planning site

Be part of the future of the parish

We need you to decide on a Neighbourhood Plan.

Please take the time to read the leaflet that has been sent to every home in the parish, visit the Neighbourhood Plan site and learn more about why a Neighbourhood Plan can help all of us with the parish’s future.

Most importantly, let us know if you’re in favour of a Neighbourhood Plan by completing your survey by 31 October 2021.

You can access the survey here – it takes a minute to fill in and will help with the future of the parish for decades to come.
