Can you help shape a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood Plan

Developing a Neighbourhood Plan for Greens Norton

We are contacting you to establish if there is an interest from local residents in our Parish to get involved with the development of a Neighbourhood Plan, it would require a working group to be in place and that means people would need to step forwards to participate in both facilitating and driving the development of a Neighbourhood Plan.

This is an opportunity to play an active role in shaping what the community wants from a local planning perspective. A Neighbourhood Plan is an agreed strategy for developments not against them, where consensus is agreed upon the type and locations of new housing and other developments. More »

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

You would be able to choose where new homes, shops and offices can be built, have your say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings you want to see go ahead.

Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community's needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

Neighbourhood planning enables communities to play a much stronger role in shaping the areas in which they live and work and in supporting new development proposals. This is because unlike the parish, village or town plans that communities may have prepared, a neighbourhood plan forms part of the development plan and sits alongside the local plan prepared by the local planning authority.

Decisions on planning applications will be made using both the local plan and the neighbourhood plan, and any other material considerations.

Neighbourhood planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for how they want their community to develop over the next 10, 15, 20 years in ways that meet identified local need and make sense for local people.

To help deliver their vision communities that take a proactive approach by drawing up a neighbourhood plan and secure the consent of local people in a referendum, will benefit from 25% of the revenues from the Community Infrastructure Levy arising from the development that takes place in their area, where their authority collects contributions using this method.

There is a lot of hard work and time commitment, required to working towards developing a Neighbourhood Plan, but it does come with many benefits for the community in the long term.

If this is something that you feel you would like to get involved in then please get in touch, if we have enough interest we will hold a session to discuss the development of a Neighbourhood Plan in further detail.

As always, please feel free to share this update with colleagues, friends or neighbours in our community
