What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)?
It is the most powerful tool a community has ever had for influencing local development!
- It is the best way to safeguard our neighbourhoods from speculative, ill-conceived development.
- It is a plan for our area drawn up by local people, representing their views and needs.
- It will provide community derived planning policies for our parish, which will be used when planning applications are considered.
It will cover important issues such as housing, green spaces, social/economic needs and priorities, leisure and transport. When completed the plan will be submitted for approval and it will be up to local people to say yes or no to it through a Parish referendum.
Our vision is to embrace the need for change and to meet the expanding need of a growing population whilst protecting those important things that have attracted generations of people to choose Finchampstead as a place to live and bring up their families
