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.
The draft Neighbourhood Plan has now been reviewed by the independent external examiner who has recommended minor amendments to the plan but otherwise passed the plan to move forward for referendum. The examiners report can be downloaded by clicking the link below. This page will be updated with details of the referendum as soon as they are available.
