We will use this page to post information about the development of our Neighbourhood Plan.
The Parish Council is a qualifying body for the purpose of developing a Neighbourhood Plan under the Localism Act 2011.
The development of our Plan is being progressed by a group of councillors and volunteers drawn from the community. The group works within a formal framework, the Neighbourhood Plan Forum Terms of Reference – Sept 2016.
Following consultation events held in December 2015 and November 2016, we are now consulting on the second draft of the Plan, which is being prepared with the help of consultants, Kirkwells.
The draft Preferred Options Plan may be viewed here:
See also the detailed reports and policies map underlying the Plan:
The consultation on the draft Plan runs until 7 April. Please use the comment form to respond to the consultation.
THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED
See here the comments of residents and of local businesses on the draft Plan (the business survey was carried out as a separate exercise earlier in the year):
In preparing this draft, the Forum has carried out housing site assessments for the village. See the methodology they used here:
The Forum had to ensure that all possible sites were assessed and the Parish Council thus issued a Call for Sites to any resident, landowner, business, developer or agent who wished to put forward sites for allocation for housing development through the Neighbourhood Plan. The form below was used for this purpose and respondees were asked not to submit sites within the Green Belt or sites already identified in the planning authority’s SHLAA.
See below information presented to the Open Event held on 3 November 2016 which launched the first draft of the Plan and explained the process for housing site assessments.
