BOXTED NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
What is the Boxted Neighbourhood Plan?
The Neighbourhood Plan is a new way of enabling local communities to influence the planning of their village over the next 10 year period.
The Plan for Boxted will cover the entire Parish, & will take about 2 years to develop, culminating in a local referendum, which will require support of 50% of voters for it to be approved.
Assuming it is approved by the local community, it will become a statutory planning document in its own right, i.e. it will hugely influence future planning decisions in the village.
Boxted is fortunate enough to have secured government funding to fund the development of the plan. These funds, which will be supplemented by Parish reserves, will fund things such as the consultation process & referendum, & the various reports we will need to commission.
A steering group has been created that consists of several Parish Councillors, & volunteers from the village, who are all giving up their time voluntarily to work on the Plan.
It is crucial that you, along with your fellow villagers, tell us what you think is important in the village.
This is your plan, & your opportunity to shape the future of the village.
We welcome your thoughts & comments.
