Why you should vote

Adopting the Neighbourhood Plan means:

  • Our local priorities and policies have legal effect
  • They have to be reflected in B&NES planning decisions
  • More local control over where development takes place
  • More local control over the type of development
  • More local control over the design of development
  • We can deal with issues not usually covered by larger plans, such as parking
  • More funds (25% 0f the Community Infrastructure Levy paid by all developers) for the Parish Council to spend on improving the village

Not adopting the Neighbourhood Plan means:

  • No change to the current status
  • Only 15% pf the Community Infrastructure Levy to spend on improving the village

Don’t miss this opportunity to help decide how we shape our future.
