What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan enables communities to shape planning policy in their area. It can be used to:

  • Develop a shared vision for the neighbourhood
  • Choose where new homes and other development should be built
  • Identify and protect important local green spaces and buildings
  • Determine what new buildings should look like

This allows local people a powerful new opportunity to plan the future of their communities.

The Neighbourhood Plan needs to demonstrate that it has been subject to the widest possible consultation and the final result has to be voted on by the community.

The whole process is lead by the Parish Council and due to the rising political importance of the Neighbourhood Plans and their influence on future developments, Great Easton Parish Council, at its meeting on the 6th October 2014, decided to form a steering group, which would become a sub-committee of the Parish Council to take this project forward.

The committee met every 4 weeks.

The Committee for the Plan was :

Roger Bowder – Chairman Richard Barribal
David Gibley – Secretary Lucy Walsh
Neil Mckay Ian Drummond
Gary Kirk Brian Hemmings
Phil Long Bob Mitchell
Ela Yates John Boulter
Julia Weaver Heather Ingram
