The Localism Act of November 2011 sets out a ‘series of measures with the potential to achieve a substantial and lasting shift in power away from central government and towards local people‘. Included in these measures is reform to make the planning system more democratic and more effective, and reform to ensure that decisions about housing are taken locally. Instead of local people being told what to do, the Government thinks that local communities should have genuine opportunities to influence the future of the places where they live. The Act introduces a new right for communities to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan.
The message from South Northamptonshire Council is that it would be in the best interests of the Parish, in terms of Planning and Development, to have a Neighbourhood Plan. It would give parishioners an opportunity to have their say. It would set out what Parishioners want for their village in the future, how they would like it to develop and how they could protect it from over development.
Following advice from South Northamptonshire Council, Kislingbury Parish Council decided to develop a Neighbourhood Plan. A key stage in the Plan is to consult with the Parish. It is essential to obtain your views and this will be done through your answers to the questionnaire.
