We will use this page to post information about the development of our Neighbourhood Plan.

See here the Government’s Guide to Neighbourhood Plans and our Summary explanation of a 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, the Neighbourhood Plan Forum is now at the stage of collating information to inform the first draft of the Plan, which is being prepared with the help of consultants, Kirkwells.  The Forum is carrying out housing site assessments for the village.  See the methodology they use here:

Housing Site Methodology HSAM Introduction 4.5.17

Housing Site Methodology APPENDIX 1 HSAM Site Assessment Template FINAL amd

Housing Site Methodology APPENDIX 2 HSAM Criteria and Evidence FINAL

The Forum needs to ensure that all possible sites have been assessed.  The Parish Council is thus issuing a Call for Sites to any resident, landowner, business, developer or agent who may wish to put forward sites for allocation for housing development through the Neighbourhood Plan.  If you wish to to do so, please use the form below.  Please do not submit sites within the Green Belt or sites already identified in the planning authority’s SHLAA.

Closing date – extended to: 30 September 2017

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.
