This is a unique opportunity for you to shape and guide the future development of where you live. It is a consultation towards a document that has legal force for the benefit of Middleton Cheney.

This questionnaire is the next stage in the programme of public consultation. It reflects the inputs and suggestions you have given us previously. If there are issues you feel strongly about which are not included, there is space at the end of the questionnaire to mention these. Some questions may concern issues beyond the scope of the Neighbourhood Plan. We have included these additional points since they reflect concerns which residents have mentioned to us and feel strongly about.

A main focus of the Neighbourhood Plan is housing and future development. Our plans should support those of our planning authority, South Northants Council. The SNC local plan is currently being updated. This survey gives you a chance to give your views and we hope you will. The plan will help to guide any future development in the parish, as well as helping us protect important green spaces.
