About the Neighbourhood Plan

Fenny Compton started work on drafting a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish in January 2017. It will build on the 2008 parish plan and provides a vision for how the parish should develop over the period up to 2031.

Neighbourhood Development 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, a housing needs survey and a full survey in 2018 and specialist surveys and information gathering exercises such as environment, history, heritage, business and young people, the plan has been drafted to include a number of development policies and principles which will guide development for the next ten years.

The Fenny Compton NDP is now in the final stages of preparation which include submission to SDC and independent inspection prior to being put to a parish referendum, and hopefully, adoption.
