Neighbourhood Development Plan – Can you help?
The Parish Council are looking to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan. This is a statutory document that will set out a vision for the future of the parishes, along with policies on:
- where development should go
- what sort of facilities need to be provided
- what improvements are needed in the area
The aim is to make Norton, Linton and Brockhampton better places to live, work and visit.
A Steering Group is being formed to develop the plan with representatives from across the group parish and consisting of both parish councillors and members of the public.
If you have an interest in your local area and can spare a few hours or more, please contact the Parish Clerk for further details.
