Letter to go with Questionnaire
You may have heard about the Localism Act which was enacted by Parliament in November 2011. This Act gave Neighbourhoods the chance to look at their area and say how they hoped it would develop over the next 15+ years by developing a Neighbourhood Plan. It is however not an opportunity to stop development but to say where development is acceptable and the type of development that is needed to bring a balance to the Neighbourhood. It is important that every type of consideration is included in the plan, because once the plan has passed through all the phases, and becomes a legal document; the specifications within the plan must be adhered to by the city planners. We must not miss out anything important because if it isn’t in the plan it won’t carry any weight with the planners in the future.
Scarcroft has a group of concerned residents, “The Development Group,” who are working hard to produce a plan. Earlier in the year you will have received flyers “OUR VILLAGE YOUR VILLAGE” telling you the dates of the public meetings about the plan. Whilst the Steering Group will lead on the production of a Neighbourhood Plan, it is important that it reflects the aspirations of the entire village and so it is vital that you have your say in what goes into it. We want to get your views on the village and as such would ask you to complete the enclosed questionnaire.
It is up to you to respond if you care about the future of our village. Your ideas are important and needed.
Neighbourhood planning is your opportunity to influence where you live.
