We want your help to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for our area.
Our Neighbourhood Plan, if successful, can become a tool for guiding the future development, regeneration and conservation of our area. It is a community-led framework that can influence planning decisions about sustainable development.
A Neighbourhood Plan is about the use and development of land.
It may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development.
It may deal with a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues (such as housing, employment, heritage and transport) or it may focus on one or two issues only.
Newsome Ward Community Forum has been designated as the Neighbourhood Planning Forum for the majority of the Newsome Ward, and we are developing the Neighbourhood Plan.
We’d like to know what is important to you, and we hope you will share your views.
