Contents of the Plan - Summary

The main purpose of the Neighbourhood Plan is to set out a vision for the evolution and long term sustainability of the Parish’s historic and built environment, protecting its rural landscape character and guiding appropriate and sensitive future development.  It covers the period 2014 to 2026.

The Plan has been built around the core issues arising from consultations with residents, proposing that:

Note that the Neighbourhood Plan must be comply with the National Planning Policy Framework, the 2011 Localism Act and the SKDC Core Strategy.  Therefore the Draft Neighbourhood Plan does not propose any more, or less, development than that currently set out in the SKDC Local Plan.  However the draft Plan does make explicit the requirements to protect key historic and landscape features and views in the way that development (which covers new build, conversions and extensions) is designed.
