What’s it for?

Nowhere is perfect. There are always things that we’d like to change and others we’d like to stay just as they are.

A Village Plan is a summary of all the main issues that members of this community are concerned about: things they would like to protect and things they would like to change.

Village Plans from an important part of local policy making. They are used as blueprints by the Parish Council (for example, as evidence of the community’s collective will when considering large planning applications). They can be as evidence for making funding bids (for example, if the community says that it wants an amenity, such as a shop, playground or allotments.)
