About Us

A Steering Group was formed to implement the Parish Council wish for a Neighbourhood Plan to be produced. This has been supplemented by a Working Group of volunteers from the Parish. 

The Steering Group is actioned to carry out all the necessary steps to comply with the Government's Guidelines for a Plan that will have a legal status. 

When all process steps are completed, it will have to be taken into account by the Local Authorities when assessing development applications in the Parish.

The present core team is as follows but will vary from time to time, for example through co-option of volunteers.
