There is a meeting tonight to explore the possibility of producing a Neighbourhood Plan for Broadwindsor, the Parish Plan was completed in 2012 and a neighbourhood plan is the next step
A Neighbourhood plan establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
where new homes and offices should be built
what they should look like
The plan can be detailed or general, depending what local people want.
Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. In most cases we expect this will mean that neighbourhood plans will have to take into account the local council’s assessment of housing and other development
