At the heart of a well-produced Neighbourhood Plan is an effective programme of consultation. We have had a good level of participation all the way through our project from a wide variety of consultees including residents of both Parishes.
The Neighbourhood Plan group on behalf of the Parish Councils have to be inclusive and open in the preparation of the neighbourhood plans and ensure that the wider community:
is kept fully informed of what is being proposed
is able to make their views known throughout the process
has opportunities to be actively involved in shaping the emerging neighbourhood plan
is made aware of how their views have informed the draft neighbourhood plan
