Are you curious to find out more about the results of the recent residents' survey in Burton on the Wolds, Cotes, Prestwold and Hoton?

Look out for the newsletter which will give highlights of the results and will be delivered to all houses in the plan area in late October or early November; this will provide you with a flavour of the result with more detailed feedback to come in our open event. More »

The open event will be held on 25 January 2017, commencing at 7pm in Burton on the Wolds Village Hall, to share information with you on the issues that were raised in the questionnaire. The Joint Neighbourhood Planning Committee has developed a number of options to address each of the issues and will be seeking your preferences that will inform the Neighbourhood Plan itself, including where any additional housing might be located.

What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood planning gives local people direct powers to shape how their local area develops and grows and to get the right development for their community.

Local communities can use neighbourhood planning to set planning policies through a neighbourhood plan and grant planning permission through neighbourhood development orders and community right to build orders.

Neighbourhood plans and orders are put to a community vote and will only be approved if more than 50% of the vote is in favour of the plan or order. This ensures that the community has the final say on whether a neighbourhood plan or order comes into force.
