Should Kempsford Parish do a Neighbourhood Development Plan?
Thank you to everyone who attended the recent Community Led Planning Event at Kempsford Village Hall, and also those who completed the volunteer form.
Elin Tattersall from Gloucestershire Rural Community Council provided an insight in to the process and benefits of undertaking a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP), and also the other types of community led plans.
Further information is available to view at www.grcc.org.uk or www.cotswold.gov.uk (under Neighbourhood Planning)
You may also be interested in looking at what other communities are doing. Lechlade’s NDP was the first plan to be approved in the Cotswolds and can be viewed either through the Town Council or Cotswold District council’s website.
Many other parishes are in the process of preparing plans, including Somerford Keynes, which may be considered a similar size parish to Kempsford and share common issues. Their draft NDP is available to view at – www.somerfordkeynes.org.uk
If you are interested in being involved with preparing a NDP or any other type of community led planning please complete the volunteer form by clicking the link below and return to the Clerk (see ‘Contact Us’ page) or any of the Parish Councillors -
