Plan updates

Once we have consulted on your Village Plan in your area, we will not consult further until we have completed the whole programme.

These pages will be updated reguarly, and our Community News section will let you know when we are refreshing your plans.

You can tell us about any community projects you are planning. Contact us by email at  and we will try to include these in your Village Plan.


At the end of 2010, we sent every household the All in One survey, which asked about the priorities of residents in each local area. We asked what people liked about where they lived and what could be improved.

We followed this up with a series of village planning events across the borough. These events gave residents the chance to discuss local issues in more detail and find potential solutions, including how we could work with the community to take things forward together. As a result, we created 14 Village Plans.

The results of the All in One survey also showed that residents had a desire to shape planning policy for their local area. Therefore we have agreed to include a dedicated section in each Village Plan, which offers residents and businesses with an easy way of developing planning policy in their area.

This type of document is known as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), and it can be taken into account when making planning decisions.


We've put together a list of FAQs to help you understand how Village Planning works.
