HOLMER & SHELWICK NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN – OPEN DAY Saturday April 7th
“Open Day – Holmer and Shelwick Parish Council have set up a Steering Group that is drafting a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) for the parish. This will allow residents and business of the parish to have a say in the future development of the area until 2031. A draft outline plan has been prepared by the Steering Group. We now need the input of residents and businesses. Is the content of the outline draft correct or should other policies and proposals be included within the plan. There will be a 4-week consultation process starting on Saturday 7th April.
There will be an Open Day on Saturday 7th April at Holmer Church Parish rooms on the A49, between 10.00am and 4.00pm, where there will be displays, an initial draft plan to view and members of the steering group will be on hand to answer your questions.
If you want to have your views on roads, housing, the environment, what you want to protect, or any other matter relating to the parish reflected in the NDP, then come along to the Open Day, and/or please do get involved and let us have your feedback and ideas for the development of the parish.”
On Thursday 4th May 2017 the Parish Council received a presentations from Sally Tagg from FT Planning and Michael Wellock from Kirkwells Planning, regarding the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). A summary of their experience and qualifications was given.
A lengthy discussion was held to determine which planning consultant would be appointed. Comments from the steering group and public were received and considered by the Parish Council. An open vote was called and it was thus resolved to appoint Kirkwells Planning. It was agreed that a meeting would be set up early June to take this forward.
