At November's Parish Council meeting concerns were raised regarding a potential outline planning application for land opposite Weaver View. For many at the meeting, this highlighted the urgent need for the creation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). See here for more information.
An NDP would be complimentary to the 2014 Parish Plan and once in place, would have a binding legal status for all planning and development issues.

The Parish Council is holding an open meeting on Tuesday 12th Jan to which all are invited at 7:30pm in the village hall.

The planned agenda is as follows

  • Welcome and introductions The need for a Neighbourhood Development Plan

Presentations from

  • Cheshire Community Action

What an NDP is and the process to develop and successfully achieve one.

  • Andrew Thompson

An independent consultant who has worked with a number of parishes to develop their policies and plan.

  • Questions, comments and hopefully some answers
  • Our next steps...

Please come to the meeting if you can.

Alternatively, please email comments to the Parish Council at parishcouncil@villagearena.org or add your comments via the contacts page of this ARENA website.
