Stoke Golding Parish Council submitted an application to develop a Neighbourhood Development Plan which will cover the parish of Stoke Golding and an area within the parish of Higham-on-the Hill in April 2016.
A six week consultation on whether this was an appropriate area to undertake a Neighbourhood Development Plan ended on 27 May 2016. Following this consultation, the council formally designated the Stoke Golding Neighbourhood Area on 15 June 2016 for the purpose of producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan.
A Neighbourhood Development Plan can establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, such as where new homes or employment should be located, what they should look like and what important services should be protected in an area.
The plan can be detailed or general, depending what local people want. Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. This means that the plan would have to take into account the strategic policies of the council’s Local Plan 2006 - 2026.
Further information, including details on how to get involved, can be viewed on the Stoke Golding Village website.
