Neighbourhood Planning gives communities power to develop a vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.
Well, it’s been a while, not helped by Covid, but the first questionnaire on the Kinver Neighbourhood Plan is out this June. Every household should have received one paper copy, and you can also fill it in online here (which saves time when analysing the results). Further paper copies, and background information, can also be found here.
By creating a Kinver Neighbourhood Plan we want to develop a shared vision of our area, to influence future decisions, for the benefit of all. The Plan can help decide what housing is built and where. It can help to protect our landscape and heritage. And it can set out what changes we should aim for, as opportunity or funding arise. Most of all, it should represent what local people see as the way forward for the next few years.
Developing and adopting the Plan is likely to take 2-3 years. Getting it right depends on local ideas, views and input. What needs to happen as we face the next decade? What do we want to keep, and what needs to evolve? Formal consultation is built into the process, but even more important will be getting good ideas in place from the beginning. Your involvement is what will make it happen.
