Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish is now a designated area for a Neighbourhood Plan and work to produce our plan has started!

Neighbourhood Plan Open Event Meetings in Old Dalby Village Hall, Queensway Scout Hut and Nether Broughton Village Hall were held on 12th March 2016. Leaflets had been delivered to all residents and business in the Parish inviting them to these events which outlined what a Neighbourhood Plan is, how is it produced and how can it help us control development in our local area. As part of the event, residents were asked for their initial opinions on a number of topics and responses will be taken into consideration when formulating the plan. Overall 76 members of the public attended and we received many useful comments and suggestions.

An Advisory Committee has been formed, which will oversee the process. Members include parish councillors and residents. However we are keen to add representatives from local businesses so if anybody from this sector is interested in joining the Advisory Committee, please contact the clerk. The Parish Council has also appointed YourLocale to help us professionally.

The Advisory committee is now meeting regularly (see the council meeting calendar) and three theme groups have also been formed which also meet regularly (also listed in the meetings calendar). The theme groups cover:

  • Housing and the Built Environment
  • Open Spaces and Environment
  • Economic Growth, CommunityFacilities and Transport

Community consultation started in March 2016 before the formation of the Advisory committee with a drop in session to introduce the concept of a Neighbourhood Plan, get some initial comments on topics from the community and ask for volunteers for the Advisory committee and theme groups. Throughout the autumn of 2016, an open consultation using the VocalEyes website gathered additional community feedback the output of which was used to formulate planning policies and potential community actions for the Plan. These policies were put to the community in further drop in sessions in Old Dalby, Queensway and Nether Broughton in February 2017.
