What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
THE PRE SUBMISSION DRAFT CONSULTATION RUNS FROM THURSDAY 16TH MAY UNTIL FRIDAY 28TH JUNE 2019.
This is your opportunity to comment on the plan before it is submitted to Test Valley Borough Council.
The NDP document includes a form for you to submit your comments. Addition copies of the form can obtained from the West Tytherley shop, Bill Seabrooke or downloaded here.
Supporting information including appendices and evidence base can be found in the Consultation section of this web site.
The Neighbourhood Plan
The introduction of neighbourhood planning is part of wider challenges to the planning system in the Localism Act 2011. The Act claims to shift decision making from central government to communities and councils. Neighbourhood planning helps town and parish councils to prepare a plan for their area, in close consultation with residents, businesses and other local organisations. Neighbourhood Plans are for the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of everyone in the community.
The West Dean and West Tytherley Parish councils have decided to co-operate to produce a joint Neighbourhood Plan for both parishes to ensure the parishes' heritage interests and local environment settings are protected, and local residents are proud and protective of those features that give the area its sense of place and sense of identity. The plan will hopefully go to referendum in Autumn 2019.
