On 13th September at 7 pm we would like to invite all Biddestone and Slaughterford residents to an open meeting in the village hall to explore whether as a community we would like to develop a Neighbourhood Plan.
Under the Localism Act, local communities have been able to produce Neighbourhood Plans for their local area, putting in place planning policies for the future development and growth of the neighbourhood.
Please visit the following link which will provide an outline of what a Neighbourhood Plan entails:
We are hoping to attract a speaker who will be able to enlighten us further on all aspects of what this would involve.
The Parish Council are acting in the first instance to bring people together to determine whether as a community they would like to formulate a Neighbourhood Plan. If the community would like to progress this, then a group will be formed which is independent of the Parish Council to move this forward.
