Neighbourhood Plan Updates

The Neighbourhood Plan is slowly but surely taking shape, going through all the necessary hoops and over the right hurdles before we can start to use it as a tool in the planning process. Over the last six months, our small team has written a 40-page 7,000-word draft version that is now ready for Parish Councillors to discuss before starting a formal ‘pre-submission' consultation. As a prelude to this, we held a Neighbourhood Plan open morning on 27th July in the Village Hall, with large printed boards showing how we intend to preserve the character of the Parish, while encouraging good quality development and improving amenities. Despite the wet weather, 30-40 residents attended to see how the plan was progressing and provide feedback. We now feel ready to take the plan to the next stage in the process, with a view to making it live in 2020.

About the Neighbourhood Plan

Fenny Compton is in its first year of working towards drafting a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish. The Neighbourhood Plan builds on the 2008 parish plan and provides a vision for how the parish should develop over the period up to 2031.

Neighbourhood Plans give residents much more power than parish plans, and through a robust programme of consultation, residents views on where, when and what type of development should take place are given statutory status.

Following an initial survey in spring 2017, the steering group are currently working on a number of specialist surveys and information gathering exercises, such as environment, history and heritage and business. This activity is all part of the build up to the main residents survey.

Neighbourhood Plans go through a comprehensive period of consultation with residents, prior to being put to a parish referendum, and hopefully, adoption.
