The survey results will provide the foundation of our plan so it is very important that your household participates. Please take the time to fill out this survey, we estimate that it should take 20~25 minutes to complete. Your views and opinions are vital to the success of the plan and will represent your thoughts.

The Localism Act 2011 introduced Neighbourhood planning. A Neighbourhood Plan allows local people to influence, for 10 to 20 years, the planning and development of the area in which they live & work and should:

•  Develop a shared vision for a village (or town);
•  Choose where homes, shops, offices and other development should be built;
•  Influence how much housing should be built, and of what type;
•  Identify and protect important local green spaces or other treasured assets.

Once approved, the plan will have legal force in setting out what development is acceptable in our community and for what reasons. Developers and local authority planners will have to take notice of it.  Without a Neighbourhood Plan, we will have little control over any development that takes place and are likely to receive less community funds from those developments.
