On Thursday 28 March at 6:30pm, the Upper Rissington Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will be hosting a community event in the Village Hall to gain insights into what the neighbourhood plan should cover.

The event will be facilitated by planning consultant Andrea Pellegram MRTPI who will be supporting the Steering Group in the preparation of the plan – to help turn the vision into policy.

Neighbourhood planning gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area and for these to be expressed in planning policies that will be used to assess local planning applications.

The event will be a short discussion of what neighbourhood planning can achieve and then interactive exercises to look at the strengths and weaknesses of Upper Rissington, a discussion about our vision for the future and then a short discussion about what policies the plan might contain. There will be a focus on green spaces.

It will be an interesting 2 hours and we hope that you can join us to share your views with the steering group.
