What is The Neighbourhood Plan?
The Neighbourhood Plan is all about shaping the future of our town. Each and every one of the draft policies we are proposing are based on months of research, evidence gathering and consultation. Before submitting our plan proposal to the Local Planning Authority, we must bring it to the attention of people who live, work or carry business in the neighbourhood area.
