Our Vision & Objectives

Our Vision

To conserve and enhance the rural character and landscape of the Parish, through sustainable, community-led development.

Our ‘Working’ Objectives

From the feedback to our first questionnaire our initial list of objectives are to;

  • Conserve the rural character of the Parish.
  • Protect the landscape, views & heritage that make the parish attractive to residents and visitors alike.
  • Retain the separation between the discrete settlements within the Parish.
  • Strive to ensure that any development does not have a detrimental affect on the community as a whole.
  • Endeavour to limit any new housing to small clusters of dwellings to reflect the general character of the Parish.

In addition we will further seek to;

  • Extend the existing and/or create new protected areas within the Parish.
  • Retain & encourage our farming community – e.g by being sympathetic to diversification.
  • Improve & enhance our existing amenities.
  • Improve the maintenance of our roads & public spaces, particularly within the settlements.

We anticipate both the Vision & Objectives being revised & refined as the plan progresses.
