Neighbourhood Plan

Welcome to our Neighbourhood Plan page

SIPC are preparing a Neighbourhood Plan (NP).  Last summer  we sent out a questionnaire to all dwellings in the parish, held a number of drop-in sessions and set up a Steering Group (SG). There was a Call for Sites to all landowners in the parish. Since then the SG has met regularly and considered evidence for many aspects of the NP. These discussions have included Heritage Assets, Site Assessments, the Local Economy, the Settlement Boundary, Open Spaces, Key Views, the Natural Environment, Transport and Public Rights of Way. We have put these documents from the SG on our website, below.

The Evidence Base was then used to draw up the Neighbourhood Plan, which the Parish Council has agreed can now go to the statutory regulation 14 consultation. This public consultation started on 5 April 2018 and will finish at midnight on 17 May 2018. A letter has been sent to all households, as well as all statutory consultees to inform residents and others of this and there will be an opportunity to view the Evidence Base and discuss the draft plan at drop-in sessions in the Memorial Hall.
