Welcome to our website. St Agnes Parish Council has given the go-ahead for the production of a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). This is being created by a Steering Group comprising of four Parish Councillors, and local residents, all of whom are volunteers from across the Parish. The plan will hopefully shape how the Parish changes in the next 10 – 15 years. This website is to keep you informed of progress, help you understand what the NDP means for our community and how you can get involved.
Update from the Steering Group Chair:
After several months of getting ourselves organised into a Steering Group, specialised Focus Groups and our very important Project Support Team, the St Agnes Parish Neighbourhood Plan is starting to gain momentum!
Over the spring and early summer we have 2 major community consultations planned; one on Housing Need in our Parish and one which will cover all types of development. Please look out for questionnaires and details of consultation events. It is vital that we get the whole community involved in the consultations; as volunteers working on the various groups we are really only there to gather evidence and draw out from you what our community needs. We will then pull this all together to form our Neighbourhood Plan, which you will later be asked to support by voting at a Referendum.
Our Neighbourhood Plan gives us all an unprecedented opportunity to influence development in our Parish. I hope you will work with us to make our Plan one that we can be proud of, and that delivers for our communities.
