Neighbourhood Development Plan

The NDP has now passed its examination and is awaiting a Referendum.  This will not take place prior to May 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.  Herefordshire Council will send out voting cards to all households once the referendum has been arranged.  Meanwhile the Plan carries significant weight in planning terms.

Following approval by the Parish Council at their meeting on Monday 9th March, the Draft NDP and associated documents has now been submitted to Herefordshire Council for Regulation 16 Consultation.

The NDP will next be discussed at the Parish Council meeting on the 9th March 2020, at The Stables – 7.30pm

Regulation 14 Consultation has now closed.  There will be a meeting on Monday 24th February 2020 at the Stables to discuss next steps.  Please find the agenda here

Following the informal consultation that took place in June/July 2019, the draft NDP has now been updated.  This will be going to the Parish Council on Wednesday 23rd October 2019 at 7pm in The Stables.  At the meeting the Council will consider approving the updated draft to go out for Regulation 14 consultation.  This consultation period is due to begin on Monday 4th November and end on Monday 16th December.  Letters will be posted to all parishioners and statutory consultees.  A drop-in event has also been arranged at The Stables on Friday 22nd November between 7-9pm.

You can find the agenda for this meeting here.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the clerk.

We are creating a Neighbourhood Plan for Canon Frome, Castle Frome, Eggleton and Stretton Grandison to be used by Herefordshire Council Planners to help make important decisions within our area for the next 15 years.

A number of open meetings and drop in sessions will be held – please keep an eye on the notice boards, parish magazines and this website for details.

Please make every effort to come along to make your views known, or to comment on the views of others

We need YOUR views and input on any topic that you would like to see included –

Examples could include future housing, sheltered housing, affordable housing, listed buildings, transport, roads, car-parking, broadband, employment, school provision and sustainability, plus anything else that you think is relevant to the future development of these parishes.

When the plan is made it has to reflect the views of the community. There will be a referendum to approve the final plan by all registered voters in the parishes. Without our own Neighbourhood Plan, these parishes will have NO SAY in how the parishes are developed.

If you can’t make it to the meetings but want to be kept informed please contact us using the contact us facility on this website
