Please note that the period for community consultation is now closed. The Neighbourhood Plan Management Group is now reviewing comments made and will be amending the Neighbourhood Plan as appropriate. Associated documents are being left on this site for the benefit of any residents who may be interested but may no longer be the current version. Updated information will be added to this site when available – residents will be notified by means of a community email.
Following the community consultation held in July and August 2013 a Revised Draft Plan is now published for the statutory period of consultation from 11th January to 22nd February. This is the last stage at which residents can contribute to the drafting of our Plan, so please take the time to let us have any comments you may have. To view the Draft Plan, click on the image above. (Please note that, because of the size of the file, the link will take you to Dropbox, from where the document can be downloaded.) Other key documents can be accessed further down this page.

The Revised Draft differs from the version published last summer in several respects, the main ones being:
- The ‘Village Envelopes’ have been rethought, leaving out Pipehouse and the brownfield sites at Freshford Mill and Rentokil. They have been renamed ‘Settlements’ as this is a term used by planning authorities.
- The idea of pressing for traffic lights on the A36 has been dropped.
- The suggested new footpath from St. Mary’s Church down to the shop has also been dropped.
- ‘Infill development’ has been more clearly defined.
- Prospective numbers of new market and affordable housing have also been clarified.
