Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

In 2003 following extensive consultation with the community, the Parish Council published a ‘Parish Action Plan’ which set out a series of improvement actions for the community. In 2010, it was agreed that most actions had been achieved and that a new Community Led PLan was necessary.

A Steering Group, comprising of Parish Council Members, the Parish Clerk and local residents, was formed to work under the auspices of the Parish Council.

All Parish Council members’ interests are declared and reviewed each year and are available by clicking here.

With regard to specifically the Neighbourhood Plan, in addition to Parish Council members, and the Clerk, over the 3 year process the Steering Group meetings have also involved members of the community who expressed an interest in the Neighbourhood Planning process; unfortunately sometimes for just a short time.
