Summary of Strategic Village Improvements in the Neighbourhood Plan

Summary of Strategic Village Improvements in the Neighbourhood Plan

As well as policies the Neighbourhood Plan sets out a number of Strategic Village Improvements (SVIs). These are not formal prescriptive policies but will be used as a guide as to how any Community Infrastructure Levy and other funding would be used for the benefit of the community. And it’s up to the Parish Council to deliver these objectives over the next 20 or so years.

It’s definitely worth taking a look at the SVIs in the Neighbourhood Plan document and give us any feedback or comments you may have for our vision for Lytchett Matravers.

In case you missed the details of the SVIs, here’s a summary of what SVIs are in the Plan:

  1. Uses of the village car park and relocation of village sport activities
  2. Encouragement of commercial, community and public buildings along the High Street
  3. CIL monies to be used on projects identified in the Neighbourhood Plan
  4. Expansion to the library
  5. Expansion to the village hall
  6. Resistance to any development within the greenbelt
  7. Preservation of the distinct character of the village
  8. Resistance to housing development
  9. Resistance to the development of the road networking within the village
  10. Establishment of ‘quiet road’ zones
  11. Establishment of 20mph ‘home zones’
  12. Provision of suitable bus routes to and from the village
  13. Establishment of a ‘safe route to school’
  14. Establishment of safe walking and cycling to Lytchett Minster school
  15. Improvements to the footpath networks around the village
  16. Management of the British Legion as a community asset

If there’s anything there that you feel strongly about make sure you feed it back to the Neighbourhood Plan group before Sunday 19th.
