Tewkesbury Town Neighbourhood Plan
 
Tewkesbury Town Neighbourhood Development Planning Meeting Neighbourhood Planning is a unique opportunity for OUR community to have its say on what WE think is right for OUR community, and provides a means by which OUR community's views must be taken into account when planning decisions about our area are made.
 
Tewkesbury Town's Neighbourhood Planning began with a group of Town's people holding an inaugural meeting on the 10 September 2014 in the Watson Hall.
 
Neighbourhood Plan's are a new initiative from Central Government designed to give local people some control over their local area.
 
Each parish has the right to submit a plan for the future of their area which authorities and planners MUST take into account when deciding changes.
 
Neighbourhood Plans can take priority when developers apply for planning permission, they are a way of helping protect areas from poor planning decisions and helping ensure the right decisions are made.
 
The process for creating a Neighbourhood plan is fairly straight forward, but requires the input of local residents in several different stages.
 
You can help the Tewkesbury Town Parish by informing town's people about our regular meetings. If you need any help with posters or flyers please ask at our meetings.

Tewkesbury Town Best Place To Live in UK Tewkesbury Town has been voted one of the best places to live in Britain for families, reaching number 11 in the UK in the Sunday Times study.
 
The Town has a relatively high quality of life with freedom from the major congestion and pollution found in larger town's, it seems important to keep these values.
 
In the absence of a Neighbourhood Plan developers and planners have more freedom, thus it's important to have one.
 
Tewkesbury Town's Neighbourhood Plan is at the beginning, everyone in the Town Parish is most welcome to get involved or just seek more information about keeping and making Tewkesbury the kind of place you want it to be.

Adjacent Parishes such as Northway, Ashchurch Rural, Forthampton, Alderton and Twyning are in various stages of creating their Neighbourhood Plans.
 
Plans can be fairly basic of very detailed, it's down to each individual Parish to create a plan they are happy with, every one's ideas are welcome.
 
Some of the areas that can be covered in a Neighbourhood Plan include: Housing, Traffic and Transport, Services and Facilities, Economy and Environment.
 
A number of smaller groups are formed to look into each of the different subject areas.
 
Neighbourhood plans are already playing a key role in housing appeals, even those that are not yet completed can have an impact on planning decisions.

Neighbourhood Plans are leading to 'Community Right to Build Orders' (CRTBOs) for projects of benefit to the local community. If approved by an examiner and 50 per cent of local people vote in a referendum for them, they avoid the need for planning permission.
