Can you help?

Holmer and Shelwick Parish Council is looking to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan.  This is a statutory document that will set out a vision for the future of the parish.  The aim is to make the parish a better place to live, work and visit.

A steering group has been formed to develop the plan with representatives from across the parish and consisting of both parish councillors and members of the public.

Kirkwells Planning have been appointed to assist the Parish Council in preparing the plan. Click here for further information on Kirkwells Planning.

If you have an interest in your local area and can spare a few hours or more, please contact the Parish Clerk for further details.

What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) sets out policies and plans for the area and gives communities direct power to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.

Neighbourhood Development Plans can:
• Decide where and what type of development should happen within the parish
• Decide what the development should look like
• Promote development of the community in line with the South Worcestershire Development Plan
• Include detailed planning policies for the parish

Neighbourhood Development Plans cannot:
• Conflict with the policies within the South Worcestershire Development Plan
• Be used to prevent development
• Include county matters such as waste and minerals
