Neighbourhood Plan

South Lenches Parish Council

Neighbourhood Plan

In 2014 the parish community completed a comprehensive parish questionnaire expressing strong views on future building expansion and valuing our heritage.

20th May 2015 the Parish Council decided to translate the community wishes on building developments and heritage into a Neighbourhood Plan to give the parish stronger protection.

6th July 2015 a Steering Group Constitution was agreed and Council members appointed to lead it. Communicated wishes to whole community by post and received 16 positive responses.

10th September 2015 Wychavon District Council approved Neighbourhood Plan application.

21st September 2015, Steering Group formed and 1st Newsletter calling for volunteers sent 3rd October.

Following changes to the Steering Group membership in June 2016 a Newsletter was delivered to the community asking for more volunteers. Two strong candidates were approved.

On the 31st August 2016 a new Chairman and Vice Chair appointed plus Clerk to the Parish Council and quotes from consultant, questionnaire specialist and housing needs survey specialist agreed. Revised (in-house) draft new questionnaire circulated and agreed we should apply to Locality for funding before incurring costs.
