What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Our Neighbourhood Plan is a legal document which carries weight for the community when planning decisions are being considered in years to come. The Long Itchington Parish Council formed a steering group to oversee the delivery of this plan for our community

It will:

  • need to consider how land should be used within the Long Itchington Parish boundary including Model Village, Bascote and Bascote Heath
  • take into account everyone’s needs for housing, business property (including agriculture), school premises, leisure and recreation opportunities, transport, communications (including internet services), open space etc.
  • highlight the things that need to be protected and improved, for example the countryside and natural environment that gives our Parish its unique rural character.

Our Neighbourhood Plan must legally be taken into account when the local planning authority considers any application for permission to develop land.
