What is the Neighbourhood Development Plan?
Neighbourhood Planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.
In our 3 wards of Beare Green, Capel and Coldharbour we are able to choose where we want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have our say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.
Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
The process starts with a series of open public meetings so everyone has a chance to express their views so please come along and join in and don’t forget to register your details to be kept informed on how the plan is taking shape.
