There is £30,000 available to the District Council for each Neighbourhood Plan for Officer support for those groups wishing to undertake the work. In addition there is £7,000 to be paid directly to each of those groups to support their work. Undertaking a Neighbourhood Plan will ensure that unwanted development such as Baxters Feild and Rodborough Fields will not happen in the future.
Debbie said "Just under 40 people attended the meeting from Town and Parish Councils to local community groups. They left enthused about the concept of Neighbourhood Planning and were excited about the funding that was available"
