A Neighbourhood Plan is a community project which derives its authority and policies from the community. Communication, feedback and consultation have played a major part in developing our Plan.
A Display weekend was held in the village hall in mid November 2018 followed by a Public Meeting. Feedback forms were available for those who wanted to comment. Although 3 weeks before the start of the official Public Consultation, these comments (below) relate to the Draft Plan and Character Assessment subject to the Reg 14 consultation.
Some minor amendments were made to the Draft Plan and Character Assessment following the Display Weekend and Public Meeting. The resultant pre submission drafts may be seen here:
The Pre-Submission consultation period ran from 7th December 2018 to 25th January 2019. Copies of the Draft Neighbourhood plan and character Assessment were displayed in the Co-Op, Parish Church, Village Hall, Fleur de Lys and St Leonards Farleigh Hungerford. Every household in the parish had a leaflet delivered which explained the process and contained a survey form. Both the leaflet and survey were available online available online.
Survey results may be seen here:
