The Steering Group met in January and resolved to accept a draft vision statement for the Plan as follows:
“ To maintain the environmental and cultural heritage of our diverse parish while promoting planning and practical initiatives to support the sustainability of our village and the well-being of its community.”
This vision, and the parish profile statement which was also adopted, form the basis on which each of the four theme groups on well-being, paths, environment and housing, move forward in developing objectives and potential options for achieving them. The outcomes of this work, including the vision statement itself and the parish profile, will form part of our next consultation exercise with the whole local community later in the year.
The theme groups are now engaged in weighing up the pros and cons of different approaches to respond to the issues raised by our community to date. If you would like to join one of these groups, or learn a little more about the Neighbourhood Planning process, please come to our next meeting, which will be held at the Memorial Hall on Thursday, 19th February at 7.30pm.
