Whatton-in-the-Vale Neighborhood Plan
6th September 2017

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN HELPING TO AFFECT THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR PARISH?

Whatton-in-the-Vale Parish Council has resolved to formulate a NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN and has formed the NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN STEERING GROUP to lead and coordinate the process. It is anticipated that the inaugural Meeting of the Steering Group will be in late October / early November 2017

 

IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT A WIDE RANGE OF PEOPLE PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROCESS AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY IS INVOLVED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

 

YOU COULD GET INVOLVED BY JOINING THE STEERING GROUP (limited to 12 members) or alternatively joining one of the specific Working Parties that will evolve during the Plan process.

 

A word of warning, members of the Steering Group will be expected to shoulder a significant amount of work in the development of the plan.

 

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING EITHER THE STEERING GROUP OR FUTURE WORKING PARTIES PLEASE E-MAIL THE PARISH CLERK AT

elliottnews@btconnect.com

Providing your full contact details and whether you wish to be a member of the Steering Group or a future Working Party.

Please use ‘Whatton PC – Neighbourhood Plan’ as the subject of your e-mail.

 

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood planning gives local communities the opportunity to plan for their local areas and decide what the place where you live should look like and how it should develop and grow in the future. It can be used to:

·         choose where new homes, shops and offices should be built

·         have a say on what those new buildings should look like

·         influence the design and functionality of open spaces around where you live

·         grant planning permission for the new buildings your community wants to see go ahead.

Neighbourhood planning cannot be used to block the building of the homes and businesses considered to be necessary to meet the borough's current and future needs. However, you can use it to influence the type, design, location and mix of new development.
