Neighbourhood Plan and Village Facilities meeting on Friday 7th December 2018
Thank you to everyone who attended the village meeting on a cold and dismal night.
Barbara Pond of GRCC explained what a Neighbourhood Plan is and benefits of having a Down Ampney NP.
She explained that the Cotswold District Council Local Plan 2011 – 2031 was adopted in August this year. This identifies potential development sites in towns and villages in the CDC area. A NP cannot contradict the content of the CDC Local Plan. But it allows us some input on layout, design and construction, parking, green spaces, and protected trees. With a NP we have to be listened to.
With Christmas behind us may I, on behalf of the Parish Council, wish you all a healthy and happy new year.
Looking forward to 2019, we await details of how Broadway Farm will finally be built out, subject to confirmation on final reserved matters and 'minor' amendments.
We are pleased that CDC have accommodated Sanctuary in their consideration of these matters that will, we trust, work in our village's favour.
