The Neighbourhood Plan group are collecting and discussing ideas for the future of the Village and Countryside as I write, and are hoping to be able produce a scheme to vote on in 6 months time. You will find detailed info about their ideas if you click the link to the Neighbourhood Plan.
The Plan will have two parts.
- “The Planning Framework – which will be a statement about building and development in the Parish that will be a mandatory part of the planning process for building in the vicinity. This will affect new buildings, adaptations, building styles, areas of the community which are considered appropriate for development, and those which shore be protected from it. This part of the plan could affect you, if you want to build something,anywhere in the Parish. So the the group will publish its discussions regularly so you can have your say – and make your suggestions.”
- “The Community Plan – working with the Parish Council and Local Groups, we want to devise a plan of action and development that will promote community facilities, activities and action. This was last attempted in 2004 [the Plan is on the Neighbourhood Planning Website] and we want to take it forward.”
Areas the Group are discussing
- Community Facilities
- Natural Environment & Bio Diversity
- The Local Economy
- Heritage, Character and Design
They hope you won’t be surprised if they come knocking on your door for your opinions!
