Neighbourhood Development Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan for Sandon Parish

What is it?  It is a document very like the Village Design Statement we already have but it will be in line with the Chelmsford City Council’s Local Plan and will be a legal document.

It will give the aspirations of the population of Sandon, and is Community led.  It is your chance to have your say about what you want for our villages of Sandon.  An NP will have more force than simply objecting piecemeal to individual developments

There are plans to put houses everywhere in Essex, and we could be asked to have a large number within the Parish.  In the first draft we were being given 250 on the field North of Sandon School plus a Commercial area next to Sandon Park and Ride.  When the final Local Plan comes out in January we could be asked to have many more houses!!! 

It is proposed to send a questionnaire to everyone in the Parish and you MUST read it and respond to it.  If we have a Neighbourhood Plan being written we WILL have a say in what type, and where, we would like them built. This is your opportunity to shape the future of your area.
