Village Plans

A Village Plan is a statement which describes:

  • Your local area and how it will develop in the future
  • The key issues, priorities and opportunities in your area
  • How to get involved to improve your local area

Village Planning Fund

A percentage of the Community Infrastructure Levy will be invested in local projects for areas that have a Village Plan. In Richmond, this is known as the Village Planning Fund.

Get involved

Village planning is all about working together with the local community. We have a number of ways you can get involved in the planning process.

Join your Village Facebook group

Share ideas, concerns and also stay up to date with the latest news from your Village:

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 regularly, 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.

Village Planning programme timetable

The second phase of our Village Planning Programme began in September 2013 and is scheduled to conclude in December 2017. By the end of the programme villages will have a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and a refreshed Village Plan.
