If you haven’t heard of neighbourhood planning, here is a little insight.
In 2011 the Localism Act introduced neighbourhood planning. The intention being that local communities get the opportunity to have a voice in the decision-making process rather than relying on local or national government policies.
Parish and Town councils are given the opportunity to produce neighbourhood plans for their local area, creating a strategy and policies for future development which will reflect the resident’s opinions via consultation.
A good neighbourhood plan will reflect the wants, needs, and aims of the community, whether that is social, economic, or environmental, for example; design of new builds, parking, transport, green spaces, and biodiversity.
A neighbourhood plan must be
- community lead
- consult the community it represents
- pass an independent examination and referendum.
Sounds simple but this is an in depth, lengthy process that can take years, however once complete is an integral part of the planning process and must be consulted, on matters of future development.
In 2021 following interest from residents, Bottesford Town Council started the ball rolling by applying to North Lincolnshire Council for area designation. A plea was made for volunteers and shortly after a steering group was formed. They are making great progress by taking advantage of its members experience and deploying them to areas that best suit their skills. The steering group are in the process of putting together their first round of public consultation. This will provide them with the first indications of what is important to residents and how they want to see their area develop. Keep updated on progress by following us on Facebook!
