At the Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 21 January 2020 it was agreed that the Draft Neighbourhood Plan document would be formally adopted.  A link to the document is below.  

This means that the Regulation 14 Consultation is underway.  The Regulation 14 Consultation is an opportunity for you to read the plan (and supporting evidence) and make comments either via our online survey or paper survey which will be delivered through your door.  There will be an exibition at the Community Centre on Friday 7 February at 7.00 pm until 10.00 pm and on Saturday 8 February from 9.30 am until 1.00 pm where you will have the opportunity to speak to Councilors and members of the Neighbourhood Plan Team about the draft Plan and have your say on the Plan.  There will also be copies of the draft Plan, Design Guide and paper copies of the questionnaires located at various businesses through the village and at the Parish Council office.  

The Consultation period will finish on Sunday 29 March at 11.59 pm.  

Further updates will be on our social media pages and this website.
