What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Localism Act 2011 introduced statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. One of the basic conditions underlying a Neighbourhood Plan is that it should contribute to the achievement of sustainable development.“It is about enabling growth to cater for the needs of current generations, but ensuring that growth doesn’t mean worse lives for future generations.” It is intended to give communities more of a say in the development of their local area (within certain limits). It will guide the future development of the area. That means it is about the use and development of land and associated social, economic and environmental issues.
The Trull Neighbourhood Plan Group was started in response to this. The group is diverse in nature. It includes farmers, retired residents and young parents. All have different perspectives but are united in wanting to preserve what is special about Trull. Change is inevitable. We would like to ensure that those changes are shaped to enhance people’s lives.
