Neigbourhood Development Plan

The Parish Council is looking at the possibilities created by the Localism Bill, and has had preliminary discussions with the Borough Planning Service about the potential scope of a Neigbourhood Development Plan for Sherfield English. Some initial ideas were discussed at the APM in May, and further research is being undertaken.

The Parish Plan

This was published in December 2008 after extensive consultation across the village, including a questionnaire delivered to all households. It provides policy statements and Action Plans for such issues as business and housing development, leisure facilities, conservation, etc., and also covers noise, traffic and other concerns.

The Sherfield English Parish Plan has been approved by the local Borough, TVBC, and endorsed by the 'Local Strategic Partnership'. Information about this latter initiative is available from their web site: www.yourtestvalley.com 

The Parish Plan includes an index of local businesses, a reference page for local groups and clubs and a map of all 'Sites of Interest for Nature Conservation' in the parish.
