Stewkley Parish Neighbourhood Plan

Stewkley neighbourhood plan


Your parish council invites parishioners to participate in this pre-submission consultation for the Stewkley Neighbourhood Plan. This is your opportunity to review and make comments on the draft Plan. The consultation period is open from June 17 until July 28

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and deliver the sustainable development they need.  It is way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work and can be used to:

  • Develop a shared vision for the neighbourhood
  • Choose where new homes should be built
  • Identify and protect important local green spaces
  • Influence what new buidings should look like

For the Neighbourhood Plan to be accepted by both Aylesbury Vale District Council and the Government, it is crucial that the whole community is involved in its preparation, not just the Parish Council.

A public consultation was held in Stewkley Village Hall in December 2015 and there was overwhelming support for the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for Stewkley Parish.  The Parish Council then established a steering group to oversee the development of the plan, led by Neil Dickens.

Latest information about the development of the plan can be found in these pages and comments and feedback are welcome from all members of the community
