Neigbourhood Development Plan

The Parish Council is developing a Neigbourhood Development Plan for Sherfield English. This goes much further than the VDS, with the objective of correcting the imbalance of housing sizes in the village, while preserving the green spaces and amenities which we value so much. It will also strengthen much of the VDS. For further details click on the NDP button to the left, or the menu tab above.

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.
