Topic Groups - Our topic groups cover

  -          Housing and Planning looking at the location and range of housing we need to plan for to meet the needs of the current and future community. The team is looking at areas such as the mix of housing to meet the needs of older residents for down-sizing, younger residents looking for their first home, and affordable housing for lower income earners; and has  invited land owners in the parish to offer potential plots they would like to be considered for development (see above).         

-          Community Facilities (Sports, recreational, school, police, church, Village Hall, clubs, village amenities etc) looking at how we maintain and enhance recreational, cultural, religious and charitable activities. The team is also looking at protecting and expanding the acquisition of community assets such as woodlands, meadows, sports grounds etc, supporting community energy projects and the provision of vibrant local sporting facilities

-            Local Economy (Local businesses, shops and services) looking at how we support local business and promote opportunities for local employment.

-         Built and Natural Environment looking at the planning system to achieve high-quality design, sustainability, consistent with the established character of the village and landscaped in a way that is consistent with our rural aspect - while looking at how we protect and enhance the environment, woodlands, meadows, landscapes, open views (our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), bio-diversity and wildlife and how we preserve the historic heritage and environment of the village.
