1. The responses that were provided by the Much Wenlock community and other stakeholders to the Residents Survey and Business Survey provided many different issues and opinions. The Steering Group endeavoured to distil them into a manageable number without losing the essence of the popular viewpoints. A further rationalisation took place at a meeting of volunteers on 12th July 2012 - here are some excerpts from 2½ hours of intense debate.

  2. The current (April 2012) key stage in community involvement with the Neighbourhood Plan is the Residents Survey. Folk from throughout the parish were involved in the filming of this short video to encourage all residents aged 14 and over to complete the survey.

  3. How to plan your own neighbourhood

    Until recently, residents have had little say in how they want their communities to grow or change, but the planning system is changing and people are being given more control.

    While the term ‘neighbourhood planning’ might not get you fired up, what these changes mean in practice is that, together with others in your area, you could make tangible things happen, like:

    getting better bus routes
    creating a community green space or orchard
    designing affordable housing for the area
    running a local enterprise, like a shop, pub or even cinema
    taking a local service into your own hands, such as the recycling collection

The Localism Bill 2010-11 became law on 15th November and amongst other things it will:
-abolish Regional Spatial Strategies
-amend the Community Infrastructure Levy, which allows councils to charge developers to pay for infrastructure. Some of the revenue will be available for the local community
-provide for neighbourhood plans, which would be approved if they received 50% of the votes cast in a referendum
-provide for neighbourhood development orders to allow communities to approve development without requiring normal planning consent

Here are some videos from communities in england which have embraced this opportunity
