The Neighbourhood Development Plan

Our Vision

“To maintain and enhance a vibrant community which is an attractive location to live, work and visit.” We want to know if that makes sense to you. If not, how would you like to see it change?

Our Aims:

Whilst the NDP and the Parish Plan have different purposes, a great deal of the work in developing the Parish Plan is helping us to identify the issues for attention in the future. We have organised our thinking around six areas of interest. For each of them, we have agreed an aim and objectives, which was the primary focus for the first round of consultation meetings in July. The six areas and their main aims are:- Amenity - To maintain the current amenities of the Parish, develop and add to them to meet the needs of the community now and in the future. Conservation - To conserve and enhance rural settings, buildings and countryside of the parish. Economy – To make the parish an attractive place to work and a sustainable place from which residents can go to work. Environment – To adapt, enhance, maintain and protect the environment to improve the sustainability of all the settlements. Housing – To improve the demographic balance and, thereby, the continuing viability of the community by the appropriate development of housing. Infrastructure - To build on the existing infrastructure for the improvement of safety, work opportunities and communications within and between the communities of the Parish and beyond. Consultation now closed.
