This plan is your community’s opportunity to shape, guide and develop your area regarding future planning issues, to ensure that it is what we want and appropriate to our needs and aspirations. This is your opportunity to contribute to the future needs regarding any developments you consider relevant to sustain the parish community of Menheniot.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan
The Localism Act 2011 introduces statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enables communities to draw up a plan for their area, and is intended to give communities a greater say in the development and sustainability of their local area.
The plan will be used to decide the future development of Menheniot Parish, giving opportunities to shape all the decisions that affect you and your family’s future.
A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding any future development, regeneration and conservation of an area. 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 or it may focus on just one or two issues only.
