NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
WE NEED YOUR HELP AGAIN

Are we heading in the right direction?

NHP Directions

The Neighbourhood Plan will help shape our community for the next 15 years, the life of the SWDP. 12 months ago many of you completed a questionnaire on your thoughts and wishes for the future development of the parish. The results were presented in the village hall. Since then we have analysed the results, gathered further evidence and formulated proposed aims, objectives and policies. We are now at the point of presenting these ideas to you to see if they meet with the approval of our community.

This is an important phase in the process as the next stage will be writing up the NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN as an official document. Once it has been accepted by Malvern Hills District Council it will face its final presentation in a referendum for adoption by the parish and become an official planning document.

The SWDP allocated 20 new houses to the parish in Hanley Swan, but additional planning applications continue! Since January 2014 we have seen applications for 13 new homes and 5 holiday lets approved, whilst 9 more are awaiting approval. 5 homes have been refused. Of those approved only 4 form part of the 20 in the SWDP.

We also realise that housing provision has to increase in the parish and we have identified some additional sites for consideration.

To give you some idea of our thinking, the following are the Aims we believe the Neighbourhood Plan should achieve.

1 – To encourage vitality and vibrancy in the community through managed growth of housing and business developments that reflect local needs.

2 – To maintain the rural environment of the Parish and its settlements.

3 – To maintain and enhance the built, historic and natural environment.

4 – To promote thoughtful, quality design of buildings and their built environment to complement or enhance their surroundings.

5 – To minimise the impact of road traffic on the day to day lives of residents whilst encouraging sustainable forms of transport.
