Parish Plans

The Government’s November 2000 Rural White Paper stated that Parish Plans should “identify key facilities and services, set out the problems that need to be tackled and demonstrate how distinctive character and features can be preserved”. They should set out a vision for the community in the future and identify the action needed to tackle issues of concern in addition to including everything that is relevant to the people who live and work in the community, from employment needs to playgrounds. The Parish Plan should consult everyone and give them a chance to say what they think about the social, economic and environmental issues affecting them and how they’d like to see their community improved during the next 5, 10 or even 15 years. The whole community has to be involved, not just those who come along to Parish Council meetings.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan

What is a Neighbourhood Plan? The Localism Act provides a new statutory regime for neighbourhood planning. Neighbourhood planning enables communities to shape the development and growth of a local area through the production of a Neighbourhood Development Plan (Neighbourhood Plan), a Neighbourhood Development Order or a Community Right to Build Order. Neighbourhood Plans will become part of the local statutory development plan and will form the basis for determining planning applications in that area. Neighbourhood Plans can range in complexity depending on the wishes of local people – they may be very simple or go into considerable detail as to where people want development. Neighbourhood Plans can be used to: • choose where new homes, shops and offices should be built, and • have a say on what those new buildings should look like. Neighbourhood Plans can be detailed or general, depending what local people want. A Neighbourhood Plan must conform with the overall strategy of the Local Plan - the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP). A Neighbourhood Plan can be used to promote more development than is set out in the SWDP but should not promote less development.
