NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN (KNDP)
By drawing up this Neighbourhood plan we hope to establish a
framework for planning and development in our area.
Everyone in the community will be able to have a say in the
content of the plan which will cover such things as housing,
commercial development, roads, public spaces, health, transport,
access and parking. The aim is to develop planning policies
which if supported by the local community at a referendum will
have legal weight and will be taken into consideration when
future planning decisions are made. IT
IS IMPORTANT please GET INVOLVED.
What specific action iniative or change would you like to see
included in the plan??
A Plan cannot conflict with policies in the wider South Hams
Local Plan, or propose less development than is set out in the
Local Plan or be in breach of national planning laws.
report on the results of the questionnaire by Devon Communities
Together can be viewed -
"From the results of the questionnaire we produced two lists.
One list of items to be included in the plan and one list of
items for the Parish Council to consider taking forward. We
have produced a vision statement and are now working on our
objectives and the policy intents for the draft plan. To view
the two lists please refer to the minutes of 5th July 2017.
In February 2018 we liased with Liz Beth a planning consultant
to review our process and obtain help with the production of
the draft plan. We obtained a grant from the government to cover
the costs of producing the questionnaire last year . We are
now in the receipt of another grant to cover the costs of working
with the planning consultant.
We have now produced a first draft of the plan. To enable residents
to view, comment, and ask questions about the suggested policies
we held open sessions on Wednesday 6th March between 6 pm and
8 pm in the Lower Village Hall and Saturday 9th March between
10 am and 12 noon. Both open sessions will be held in the Lower
Village Hall Fore Street Kingswear. The open sessions were well
attended with just under 80 people coming to see the policy
ideas. The response was very ;positive only one query was raised
about suitability of a playground at Hillhead
