Neighbourhood Planning Event, 23 Nov 2013.
The Localism Act, which received its Royal Assent on 15 November 2011 "sets out a series of measures with the potential to achieve a substantial and lasting shift in power away from central government and towards local people." (Greg, Clark MP Minister of State for Decentralization).
Neighbourhood Planning is a new way for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and/or work. Where they want new homes, shops, offices. What they should look like. When they should be built.
The Plan will influence the future of Bidford-on-Avon parish, including Barton, Broom and Marlcliff – homes, jobs, transport, etc. so it is important that ALL participate to ensure future Bidford is what the Bidford community want it to be.
Neil Pearce, a planning consultant, made a great presentation at a meeting on 24 November which can be read below.
You may also wish to visit the Stratford-upon-Avon Neighbourhood Plan site - www.ourstratford.org.uk - to obtain more information as to what is required and what can be delivered.
Further information will be posted on this site.
