So what is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood planning was introduced through the Localism Act 2011.   Such plans are created through direct engagement with the community they relate to, and provide the opportunity for residents to influence the manner in which their community develops.   By following the required processes such Plans become part of the statutory development plan for the local area to be used in conjunction with specific national and county planning policies when considering future developments.   Our plan is at a very early stage but from the results of our initial survey we have established the ‘working’ Vision & Objectives that can be found on our site, albeit these may be amended as the plan progresses.
