Dadlington Neighbourhood Plan
The 2011 Localism Act has given communities the right to draw up a Neighbourhood Development Plan. This right is aimed at giving local communities genuine opportunities to influence the future of the places where they live. The Dadlington Neighbourhood Plan will allow people who live, work and have a business in the area to have a say where they think new houses, businesses and shops should go and what they should look like.
The Dadlington Neighbourhood Plan will be a statutory plan which means that once it has been finalised, it will be the starting point for deciding planning applications in the village. We do not have a completely free hand on the preparation of our Neighbourhood Plan. We have to take account of the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council's Local Plan. The Borough Council is currently preparing a new Local Plan for the area which will provide for substantial housing growth through to 2039. All parts of the Borough will have to play their part in meeting this, but our Neighbourhood Plan will ensure that local people have a big say in how this will be met in Dadlington.
Between 5th & 8th January 2021, we will be distributing a questionnaire to residents with a deadline for returning them of 29th January. We urge everyone in the village to complete the questionnaire either on paper or online.
Given the recent planning application for Roseway in Stoke Golding which further narrows the gap between the two villages, it is important that we proceed with our neighbourhood plan as quickly as possible so that we have a clear vision for the future development of the village that will have to be considered by the council when making decisions.
The neighbourhood plan group is made up of 12 volunteer villagers. The cost is government funded via Sutton Cheney Parish Council.
