Your chance to have a say on the future or the Parish


      At present, planning law makes development of new homes in the parish almost impossible since the land here is considered by the planning authorities to be ‘open countryside’. There is a presumption that no development is permitted, and this is reflected in the county’s planning policy. A Neighbourhood Plan allows us, as a community, to have a say in what kind of development we would be willing to see or not see in our parish. When a planning application is submitted, the authorities must consider any adopted Neighbourhood Plan as part of their decision making process. This means that land you own could possibly be developed. It also means that land near or bordering your property could be developed. A Neighbourhood Plan has real legal force. 

    The Neighbourhood Plan is about much more than developing houses though, it’s our chance to set down our views on the issues that matter to us, be they road safety, footpaths, protecting local businesses, transport or measures to tackle climate change. Although it is advisory only, it becomes a record of our priorities and concerns. Communities with adopted Neighbourhood Plans can gain better access to Community Infrastructure Levy funding for local projects and the priorities in our plan will help us direct those funds to projects we care about.

    This affects us all so its important we all have our say and, ultimately that the Neighbourhood Plan we adopt best reflects the views and aspirations of our community.
