What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
In November 2011, the Government passed the Localism Act; the aim of which is to facilitate the devolution of decision making powers from central government control to individuals and communities.
This means that each community has the ability to shape how it evolves. The Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is your way of determining what Edenthorpe should look like, for you, your children, and your grandchildren without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. An 'adopted' NDP is a statutory planning policy document, which by law must be taken into consideration when future planning decisions are being made within the area.
You can help decide what this Parish wants/ needs in the next 15-20 years.
This survey is your chance to influence what your NDP should include, specifically around key planning issues:
1. Influence the level, type and location of future developments.
2. The design of new buildings and spaces.
3. The protection of our Village facilities.
4. The preservation and enhancement of our historic environment.
5. Protecting our important landscape character.
6. Encouraging new and improved infrastructure in the area .
The Parish Council would like to know how your household view the Parish, the amenities you use, and/ or what you would like to see in the area.
This survey is intended to be completed by people aged 16 or older. Younger people will be given the chance to participate through other methods of consultation at a later stage. The survey will be available until the 4th June 2017.
If you are having trouble completing the survey, then please contact the Parish Clerk. Thank you for your time.
