Neighbourhood Plan – Time to Comment (Again)

April 28th to June 12th 2017

Welcome to the Hanley Castle Parish Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

This is a further opportunity for the residents of the parish of Hanley Castle to comment upon the documents which comprise the neighbourhood plan. In 2014 we received the results of our questionnaires to both residents and businesses. Since then a lot of work has been done to reflect these results in policies that will form part of the planning process. The results of our previous informal consultation have been incorporated into these revised documents.

Neighbourhood plans are part of the Localism Act and it is hoped that all the effort of going through the process will mean that communities such as Hanley Castle parish will have more say in the number, type, location and design of developments within their parish, whilst fitting in with other strategic policies such as the South Worcestershire Development Plan.

There are a number of key documents for you to look at:

  • Guidance for Making Comments –  if you think you are going to make comments then read this first as it sets out the scope of what we are looking for.  Includes comments form.
  • The Neighbourhood Plan – this is the main document and contains the proposed policies and their justification.
  • Building Design Guide – this is a complementary part of the neighbourhood plan and provides guidance to residents and developers upon aspects of building design.

This consultation is an opportunity for the community to comment upon the detail of the neighbourhood plan and for us to make any appropriate changes.

Just click on the documents above to access them. They can be downloaded to your own computer if you wish.

You can comment using the online form or by downloading the comments form, completing it and dropping your form into the Hanley Swan Village Stores and Post Office.

All comments are welcome and you do not have to do a line by line review.

The consultation ends on 12th June.
