Do you want a neighbourhood plan?
CHALFORD Parish Council is hosting three consultation meetings to see whether there is any public interest for a neighbourhood plan.
The parish council has already secured £3,800 from the Department of Communities and Local Government to start the planning process however the final application must demonstrate a level of community support.
A neighbourhood plan sets out the community’s overall vision for the area and its aims for future development and growth by giving the parish a say on what areas should be reserved for housing if any, and also what kind of housing is built.
However any plan produced by Chalford Parish Council must be consistent with the district council’s local plan with is due to be examined by an inspector and could come into force next year.
Consultation meetings will take place in each of the parish wards to explain the role and process of a neighbourhood plan while also giving members of the public the chance to have their say on the future of their village.
The first meeting is being held at the Village Hall in London Road, Chalford, on Wednesday, November 7.
There will also be a public consultation at Chalford Hill Methodist Church in Midway on Monday, November 18 and at Frith Youth Centre in Brownshill Road on Thursday, November 28.
All the meetings start at 7pm and aim to be finished by 8.45pm.
