Dymock Parish

Neighbourhood Development Plan

The Dymock Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan, under the direction of the Dymock Parish Council, has prepared the following information.

The Dymock Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (the Plan) is a new type of planning document that sets out the direction of growth in Dymock parish until 2031. It is part of the Government’s new approach to planning, which aims to give local people more say about what goes on in their area.

The Plan will provide a vision and objectives for the future of the community and sets out clear policies to realise them.

The Plan will be developed through extensive consultation with the people of Dymock parish and others with an interest in the community.

The Plan gives local people the opportunity to have some control over where new housing and any other new development should be built.

The Plan is designed to be flexible, adaptable and above all sustainable in order to ensure the future wellbeing of our community, meet the needs of a growing population, safeguard our environment and build our local economy.
