According to the gov.uk Website, a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) “gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead.”
It’s a consultative process to find out what our community wants and express this in a way to help our parish evolve as the community wants it to. Yes we have to fit in with national and local legislation but a NDP can and will impact the future of our area.
We hope that everybody has their say and that anybody can help the process.
We have a 14 member Steering Group and working groups for:
- Environment & Heritage
- Business, Employment, Transport and Infrastructure (BETI)
