Our Vision for Dinedor Parish is to maintain its rural nature and to promote the health, well-being and sense of community of the residents.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
Neighbourhood Plans are a new part of the statutory development planning system. Just as Herefordshire Council can produce plans to promote, guide and control development of houses, businesses, open spaces and other uses of land, parish councils can now have some control by preparing a neighbourhood plan. When complete, the plan will form part of the statutory development plan for Dinedor parish. It will be used to promote and guide what goes where and will be used to help determine the parish council’s response to planning applications.
What area does it cover?
It covers the whole of the parish area. In the draft plan there is a map showing the parish boundary.
How has the draft plan been put together?
A parish council steering group, made up of parish councillors and local people has put the draft together with the help of an external planning consultant. The cost of the consultant has been paid for by a grant from Herefordshire Council.
Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings of the Steering Group. The next meeting of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be on Tuesday 11th February 2020 at Dinedor Village Hall, starting at 7.00pm. A copy of the agenda can be downloaded by clicking here.
