Neighbourhood Plan

The councillors and members of the community are working together to produce this plan. The project commenced in autumn 2014. Funded is being sought with an initial grant from the Community Development Foundation of up to £8,000.

Area Designation was applied for at the beginning of February 2015 to VWHDC. It took until July before the Designation was approved. Needless to say this was an undesirable delay and one we felt could have been avoided.
