At a meeting in 2015 it was decided by those local residents attending to take up the opportunity of shaping how our village develops and to produce a Neighbourhood Plan. Neighbourhood Plans can’t stop development but they can influence it, for example by saying where local people think new homes or businesses should go and what they think is important to preserve about their village. Once approved by local residents, a Neighbourhood Plan is a legal document that the District Council has to take into account when deciding on planning applications.

Following the public meeting, a Steering Group was formed and has been meeting over the last 2 and a half years to undertake the job of making a draft plan. The group consists of a small group of residents and parish councillors; this group has developed a leaflet, this website and a number of questionnaires.
We were keen to take up the opportunity to produce a Neighbourhood Plan that gives the whole village the chance to have a say in the future of where we live and many of us work. We held a number of open events to give more information about Neighbourhood Plans, where we’re up to with our plan, and, most importantly, to hear from you your thoughts on the future of the village.
The Steering Group is currently made up of a small group of residents and parish councillors, If you’re interested in finding out more information please contact the Parish Clerk on 01427 890780.
The Draft Neighbourhood Plan is now complete and has been submitted to the District Council for public examination and referendum. The Plan can be viewed on our documents page
