New Steering Group Chair OCT 2016

At the 19th September Parish Council meeting, it was proposed and agreed that I would take on the role of chair of the Neighbourhood Plan steering group.

Since then I have been familiarising myself with all the work the Neighbourhood Plan team has so far completed with the help and support of this community. The team is made up of several volunteer Working Groups, looking at Ewhurst's needs from a variety of viewpoints, from traffic, to housing, to village assets and infrastructure, among others. Check out the Working Group reports section on the Parish website (data downloads) to see for yourself how far we have come.

Our next steps involve drawing together all this work, bridging a few gaps in the working groups' evidence base, and from there developing key policies that will form the components of an early-stage draft of an outline plan. We can then move forward rapidly towards a final Draft Plan on which the community will be consulted.

In the meantime, we will be posting more updates on this website, in local newsletters and on parish notice boards.

Although we now hope to progress quickly, our aim is to deliver a community-led final Neighbourhood Plan that will guide future development, regeneration and conservation and reflect your views and aspirations, wants and needs.
