In a small village like Preston do we need to take on the work, time, trouble and expense of producing a Neighbourhood Plan?

posted in: FAQ | 0

The next draft of the Local Plan will be available for consultation in September 2016 and the housing numbers which NHDC has to provide have been revised upwards. Preston has been allocated a 24% increase up to 2031.It is expected that houses will be allocated to the NHDC field. It is anticipated that the NHDC field and the field near the Primary School will be included within the village boundary. To have some degree of control and influence we need to have a Neighbourhood Plan but we need to remember that it is not just about housing, it covers other important aspects, for example history and archaeology.
