Neighbourhood Plan for Seagrave?
Posted: Wed, 11 Jan 2017 11:32 by Sue Norledge
- The Parish Council has been looking at the possibility of Seagrave developing a Neighbourhood Development Plan. A NDP is a way for communities to influence the planning system within the area that they live. NDP's are a powerful means for villages to influence developments in their area. They can shape development and deal with a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues. They allow local people to ensure that the types of development that the community wants are delivered. Creation of a shared vision is one of the first steps in being able to have a legal influence of the planning system in the area. The finalized document would form part of the legal planning framework.
Many villages in Charnwood are in the process of developing a NDP. In order to develop a NDP it is essential to have the involvement of the community and they would spear head the process. There are sources of funding available to assist in this process.
The Parish Council would like to see if there are interested members of the village who would like to become involved in the production of a Neighbourhood Plan for Seagrave. If you would like any further information or to express interest in becoming involved please contact the Clerk or speak to any of the Councillors.
