Shaping the Future of Laverstock and Ford Parish
Laverstock and Ford Parish Council has embarked on the production of a Neighbourhood Plan. This is a very real commitment to the future, backed by central government community legislation (the Localism Act 2011). It follows on from the Parish Plan which has been in place since 2009 and has successfully encouraged and guided many improvements in our area during a period of significant growth. Its scope is more limited than the Parish Plan, since it is required to focus primarily on land use and development, but within this area it has more legal weight in planning decisions within the parish. This website forms part of the community engagement essential to informing residents of progress and gathering their views on and input to the Plan.
Our Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development of our parish through to 2036. It contains a vision, aim and objectives, development planning policies, and proposals for improving the area, specifically addressing the issues of landscape and green space preservation, community infrastructure and protection of the environment. It will be subject to examination by an independent examiner appointed by Wiltshire Council and a referendum involving all of the parish. Once agreed and “made” it will form part of the Wiltshire Development Plan. This means that Wiltshire Council, or planning inspectors, will have to take account of the Neighbourhood Plan when making decisions concerning planning applications or appeals in the neighbourhood area.
