What Is A Neighbourhood Plan?
A neighbourhood plan is a community led planning framework which will guide future development, regeneration and conservation in an area. People with passion and enthusiasm can use neighbourhood planning as a means to changing their neighbourhood for the better. Our neighbourhood plan is being led by a steering group, currently comprising 4 men and 5 women all of whom live in and love our locality. Should you have a skill, experience or something to offer please contact us, join us and be part of our neighbourhood planning.
