How did we come about
We exist because a change in planning law gives local communities - that's YOU - new powers to determine how THEY want to see their Area develop.
That's got to be good, right?
We do this by getting together as a community to create a Neighbourhood Plan that sets conditions (policies) for new development. And the way we come together is through a Neighbourhood Forum.
Join us on this journey, add your voice, and in the process get to know more about the people and life in this wonderful place we are lucky to call home.

An important early focus was to define a robust framework to ensure the Forum is professionally governed - with clear leadership, roles and responsibilities - and operates within an agreed constitution and procedures. As we are not regulated like a Parish Council, we also decided to set the Forum up as a company limited by guarantee. This provides assurance to Forum members that activities are being managed within a legal framework and with a level of independent external oversight, particularly of any grant funding we may secure.
