Building Our Plan 

This is where we’re posting some of the raw materials from which we’re building our draft Neighbourhood Plan.

Our online survey closed in mid-April – and headline analysis shows that the town wants us to focus on leisure, culture and commerce.

The challenge now is to take the views expressed in response to our questionnaire… and synthesise these into workable policies.

At all times, we need to concentrate our efforts on issues that can eventually be enshrined in enforceable planning guidelines.

At a meeting on 8 September we reviewed draft policies under the six headings outlined below - but we are now working to boil these down into five new categories. We aim to revamp these pages to reflect this after our next meeting on 13 October.

As always, we welcome your thoughts – and we’ve decided that continuing debate is going to be easiest via Facebook and Twitter.

We value your input.

 

Please let us know what you think.

must be evidence-based.

 

As community dialogue builds momentum, we’ll all start to get a feel for this. In the meantime, though, there’s lots of online help and guidance for people embarking on this process.

It’s worth checking out this elegantly-produced writing toolkit for neighbourhood planners; and an online search will direct you to neighbourhood plans at various stages of completion up and down the country.

It’s interesting to see so many different approaches – evidence, of course, that every single community in the land faces a unique set of issues.

One of the challenges we face is pitching this at the right level – not too detailed yet not too vague and abstract either. And our final submission will be rigorously assessed, so all our assumptions and statements
