WELCOME TO THE WOOL PARISH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN WEBSITE

The Parish Council decided to create a Neighbourhood Plan to:

  • Develop a shared vision for Wool, Bovington and East Burton which is led by local people

  • Increase the Parish Council’s proportion of money generated by developments to improve our Parish

  • Identify and protect important local green spaces

  • Influence what new homes should be like

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN IS NOT A WAY TO STOP DEVELOPMENT BUT CAN HOPEFULLY SHAPE IT

The first stage in developing the Neighbourhood Plan is a questionnaire which has been sent to every household in the Parish. The questionnaire is your chance to contribute to how Wool, Bovington and East Burton will look over the next 25 years.

The questionnaire can be completed online HERE. The closing date for submitting your response is 31 October 2019.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

Once the Steering Group has analysed your responses, they will be able to identify what the Neighbourhood Plan should focus on. They will then start working on the Plan, communicating and seeking further opinion as they progress. 

 

Neighbourhood Plans usually take a few years to be developed. At the end of the process you will have the opportunity to vote on whether the plan should be accepted.
