Shaping the Policies

The purpose of our Neighbourhood Plan is to influence development in the Parish in order to safeguard what we value about where we live and to seek further improvement. As part of this, we need to set out our approach to, and priorities for, various development issues.
     

Draft policies have been developed by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. They take account of consultation with the community through the Parish Plan Survey, the Neighbourhood Plan Visioning Events, Design Forum and other meetings.  The draft policies have been set out in six sections


• Access and Movement
• Business and Employment
• Community, Leisure and Recreation
• Design Quality
• Housing
• Landscape and Environment

Policies have by no means been decided.  We are looking for your comments on the draft document and for other ideas, to inform further work on the Neighbourhood Plan.   To provide feedback you can go to our Facebook page, email bandmnp@gmail.com or use the black mailbox outside Matfield Pavilion.

The draft policy document is available from the Steering Group or can be downloaded from the NP website.  The posters summarizing the document and the presentation made at the meeting on 9th November can also be viewed using the buttons below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following the public consultation the Steering Group will develop these and your other ideas further.  A draft Neighbourhood Plan will then be prepared and will be the subject of further consultation.

PLEASE PLAY YOUR PART TO MAKE SURE THAT
OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN REFLECTS WHAT THE
COMMUNITY WANTS – EVERYONE COUNTS!
