What is a neighbourhood plan?

The introduction of neighbourhood planning is part of wider challenges to the planning system in the Localism Act 2011. The Act claims to shift decision making from central government to communities and councils. Neighbourhood planning helps town and parish councils to prepare a plan for their area, in close consultation with residents, businesses and other local organisations. Neighbourhood Plans are for the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of everyone in the community.

Like many historic villages, West Ashton’s heritage interest and local environment setting are its defining assets, and local residents are proud and protective of those features that give the village its sense of place and sense of identity.
