Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood Planning

So after several years of hard work have you got a made neighbourhood plan? 

Perhaps you are nearing that point. What happens next?  How are you achieving your goals?

Does your plan contain sections on protecting the environment – preventing climate change? Would you like to be in control of affordable housing development in your Parish? How about building your own; possibly renting them to local families – creating an income stream for the Council? Alternatively, you could be engaging a housing association to manage that resource.

Do you have a pub that is under threat or another community asset? Have you considered taking out a loan to achieve your aims?  Are you expecting any CIL funding? How will your Planning authority distribute the funding and what can you spend it on?  How will you manage the expenditure; if you are getting a lot of money might you need a project manager?

When was your plan “made”? Have you prepared for a revision after five years?

This discussion will touch on all of these issues and others you may wish to raise.
