A parish that retains, enhances and protects its unique character in a managed and sustainable way, meeting the present and future needs and wishes of all ages who live and work in it.
A neighbourhood plan is:
- a document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area. Planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
- written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
- a powerful tool to ensure that the commnuity gets the right types of development, in the right place.
- an important document with real legal force, therefore there are certain formal procedures that it must go through.
A group of local parishioners have agreed to write a plan for the benefit of the community and all the parishioners will be consulted and views sought at all stages of the plan.
Once the plan is finalised there will be a referendum within the parish as to whether to accept the plan. It is planned that the referendum on the plan will take place in early 2018.
See here for a copy of the leaflet delivered October 2015 to all households in the parish.
Next meeting of the group: Wednesday 12th April 2017, 7:30, Windmill Inn.
All parishioners welcome to attend and there will be 2 public participation slots.
