The Parish Council has decided to produce a Neighbourhood Plan. This will be a long process and the parish council will be consulting with all residents at every step —this will be your plan and your involvement will be crucial to its success.
As a first stage in the consultation process, we are carrying out a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats), to help us put together a focused and detailed survey in the coming months. This will be your neighbourhood plan to help shape how you want your village to be in the future, so it's important that you take the time to be involved and tell us what you think.

The following information is from the Neighbourhood Planning page of Waverley’s website. Further information can also be found by going to www.locality.org.uk.
An adopted neighbourhood plan will form part of Waverley's statutory Local Plan against which all planning applications and development proposals will be decided. A neighbourhood plan could include neighbourhood development orders and community right to build orders.
A neighbourhood plan could be used to:
choose where new homes, shops and offices should be built
have a say on what those new buildings should look like
influence the design and functionality of open spaces around where you live
grant planning permission for the new buildings your community wants to see go ahead.
Neighbourhood planning cannot be used to prevent the building of the homes and businesses required to meet Waverley's current and future needs (as set out in the Local Plan). The neighbourhood plan can be used to influence the type, design, location and mix of new development.
