What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
“A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. It may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development. It may deal with a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues (such as housing, employment, heritage and transport) or it may focus on one or two issues only. These may be issues that are relevant to the whole neighbourhood or just to part of the neighbourhood. This is for those producing the plan to decide.”
As a Parish Council we have now embarked on this journey and this page will keep you up to date with all aspects. It is important that we engage with all of the community so that eventually we can shape a Plan that will receive a positive result at a local referendum.
The parish council agreed to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for the area at a Parish Council Meeting on 9th October 2014. This webpage provides you with information on the Blisland Neighbourhood Development Plan
Neighbourhood Area Designation
