The Isham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has been asked by the Parish Council to progress the formulation, consultation and ultimately the adoption of a neighbourhood plan for Isham.
In order to achieve this, we need your input to ensure that you have a proactive opportunity to help to shape that plan. The first step along this route will be to circulate a questionnaire to every household in order to glean thoughts and opinions on the priorities for the plan. To complete the questionnaire online, please visit the following link -https://www.getfeedback.com/r/u1jryWaf following the questionnaire, an engagement meeting will be held on 18th July, 4-8pm in the Village Hall to further inform and discuss the way forward.

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐍𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠? Neighbourhood Planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and help shape the development and growth of their local area. Neighbourhood Planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the type of environment, facilities and infrastructure that they would like to see.
𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐝𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐍𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧? Neighbourhood Planning enables communities to play a much stronger role in shaping the areas in which they live and work and in supporting new development proposals. This is because a Neighbourhood Plan forms part of the development plan and sits alongside the local plan prepared by the local planning authority. Decisions on planning applications will be made using both the local plan and the neighbourhood plan and any other material considerations. Neighbourhood Planning provides the opportunity for communities to set out a positive vision for how they want their community to develop over the next 10, 15, 20 years in ways that meet identified local need and make sense for local people. They can put in place planning policies that will help deliver that vision and encourage the granting of planning permission for development they want to see.
