Welcome to the Saxilby with Ingleby Neighbourhood Plan
Saxilby with Ingleby are at the start of the process of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan.
Saxilby and Ingleby are a pilot area for Neighbourhood Plans
Saxilby and Ingleby were one of 108 communities awarded ‘frontrunner’ status by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in March 2012. This status is accompanied by funding from the DCLG which is to be used by the Parish Council to work up a Neighbourhood Plan and test the principles of the system.
Where we are now
We are at an early stage in the process.
Since the Parish Council became a frontrunner in March 2012 , we have made a start on the Neighbourhood Plan and have taken the first formal step of writing to West Lindsey District Council to specify the boundary that the Plan will cover.
In August 2013, the Parish Council appointed local planning consultants Globe Limited to work with them to assist in the preparation of the Plan.
In addition, we are fortunate to also be supported by elpeeko designers and printers.
Neighbourhood Plans – A new planning tool for local communities
The Localism Act 2011 introduced additional powers for local communities including the ability for town and parish councils and “neighbourhood forums” to prepare Neighbourhood Plans. These Plans, if prepared and adopted in accordance with the Act, will form part of the planning policy for the area and will have to be taken into account when decisions are being made on planning applications.
A neighbourhood plan can establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood, like:
• where new homes and offices should be built
• what they should look like
The plan can be detailed or general, depending what local people want.
Neighbourhood plans allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, but the plans must still meet the needs of the wider area. Neighbourhood plans will have to take into account the local council’s assessment of housing and other development needs in the area and reflect the objectives of the Central Lincolnshire Joint Planning Unit and West Lindsey District Council’s relevant planning policies.
How to get involved
The Parish Council want your input into the Plan. There will be many opportunities to become involved over the next few months and into 2014.
All information relating to the preparation of the Neighbourhood Plan including about forthcoming events and meetings will be published on this website.
