A team has been working through 2021 to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for Claypole. Once it has been agreed through consultation and referendum, this plan will be used to guide decisions on planning applications. So it will play a crucial role in the development of our village over the next 15 years. A draft Neighbourhood Plan has now been produced, and builds on community responses to the survey earlier in 2021. You are invited to have your say once again. A formal consultation commences on 7 February 2022 and will finish at 5pm on 21 March 2022. The draft Neighbourhood Plan can be found here, together with a response form for any comments you may have – return details are given on the form. Note. There will be a drop in session at the village hall on Saturday 19 February 2-5pm when you will have the opportunity to ask questions of members of the Steering Group.
