What is a Neighbourhood plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the future planning
of the area in which they live and work. The Plan must be an evidence-based assessment of the social, economic and environmental needs of a community. This Plan will give the local community an
opportunity to have a greater say in the planning and development of the village over the next ten to fifteen years. Once adopted the Plan will have legal weight and will be used when making planning
decisions in the Parish.
A Neighbourhood Plan allows us all to:-
- Have a say in where new homes, shops and offices and other developments should be
- Identify and protect or develop local green spaces.
- Influence what new buildings should look like.
