WERRINGTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

What is the Werrington Neighbourhood Plan?  The Plan will form part of the planning framework for how Werrington can develop in the future and will sit alongside the City Council’s planning policies  the future. It has been drawn up by residents following feedback from consultations, questionnaires and input and contains policies and proposals to protect Werrington’s unique characteristics, locally important views, biodiversity areas and green spaces. It also sets how buildings should be designed to be in keeping with the character of the area and supports the delivery of priorities such as climate change initiatives. It is supported by the evidence files which can also be seen alongside the Plan below

Draft Plan Consultation This is an important opportunity for all residents, businesses, landowners and statutory bodies to review the draft Plan and Evidence Files and to give their comments about the content and policies being presented. A successful Neighbourhood Plan will have legal status and carry real weight in decision-making so it’s important that local people and businesses take part in this process and make comments. The formal consultation will run between  17th January and midnight 29th February.
