How would you like to see the environment protected?

Hedgerows, trees and our gardens provide a richness to the landscape of our village. Policy 5 of the Neighbourhood Plan aims to encourage developments in the village to provide green open spaces as well as preserve our existing landscape. What do you think?

Policy 5: Developments which provide open spaces and green assets (trees), and connect these spaces with others in the village, and allow public access to such spaces, will be encouraged. Important Hedgerows and trees are to be protected and wherever possible enhanced. New developments that do not incorporate these features will need to demonstrate why. Planting programmes for new developments should incorporate native arboreal species local to the area.

Whether you agree or not with our approach, make sure you let us know. You’ve only got till 19th July to feedback your thoughts on this policy and the others in the Neighbourhood Plan.
