Any neighbourhood plan can take several years from start to very finish. They finish when, following a successful referendum, they are 'made' and become a document that must be considered by planning officers when deciding on whether to approve planning applications.
The neighbourhood plan will focus on our single parish area, with a steering group made up of people connected with that area.
Where are we in the process?
Work started in the summer of 2020 and we have received funding from Locality, the Government funded agency that provides advice, guidance and funding to groups undertaking neighbourhood planning. This money has paid for the consultancy support we need.
We have established a working group, their page is available to browse HERE, and we'd like to thank them for their support.
