Statement of Planning Principles

Legbourne Parish Council has been attempting to pull together a Neighbourhood Plan since 2014. Over the period of drafting it has become apparent that the process required to achieve approval makes the document lengthy, wordy and difficult to access and assimilate against local needs and priorities. Accordingly in January 2017 the Council resolved to draw up a Statement of Local Planning Principles which is designed to be more relevant to Legbourne's residents and businesses but will still seek to reflect wider planning policies and law. A draft of the document is attached. The views of residents and businesses operating in the parish were sought, both on the full length document that appears on this website and a precised version delivered to homes in the village. Comments received were low in number and mainly (but not wholly) favourable. The Parish Council will consider the document again in 2018 with a view to formal adoption.
