What is a
A neighbourhood plan is a community-led
planning framework for guiding the future
development, regeneration and conservation of
an area. It is about the use and development of
land and may contain a vision, aims, planning
policies, proposals for improving the area
or providing new facilities, or allocation of
key sites for specific kinds of development.
It may deal with a wide range of social,
economic and environmental issues (such as
housing, employment, heritage and transport)
or it may focus on one or two issues only.
These may be issues that are relevant to the
whole neighbourhood or just to part of the
neighbourhood. It is for those producing the
plan to decide on its scope and content.
A neighbourhood plan will be part of the
statutory development plan for the area, if
successful at referendum. This statutory status
gives neighbourhood plans far more weight
than some other local documents, such as
parish plans, community plans and village
March 2016, Frisby Parish Council held an open meeting to see
if there was interest by villagers in launching the process
of developing a plan for the village. The attendance was
very positive and an Advisory Committee was formed. The establishment of a NPAC meant that the village would be able to influence its future development, rather than just follow a plan set by the Borough Council.
addition, members of the Parish Council along with the Parish Clerk and Yourlocale (a specialist agency who will provide expert advice)
support the Committee.
Frisby on the Wreake NPAC Committee
Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee is urgently looking for
volunteers from the village to be involved in shaping and influencing the growth
and development of our village future. The finished
plan will ultimately be submitted to Melton Borough Council.
