Neighbourhood Development Plan



LOCAL GREEN SPACES

COMMUNITY SURVEY

As part of our work in developing the Aldbourne Neighbourhood Development Plan, local people have suggested some small areas of land that they think could benefit from being formally designated in the Plan as ‘Local Green Spaces’ (LGS), providing them with protection from any future development. LGS designation “allows communities to identify and protect green areas of particular importance to them[i]

The legislation on LGS is very strict; the spaces above are those that we have assessed and found to be potentially compliant with national planning policy criteria. To our knowledge there is no current intention to develop these sites. (Other spaces, such as the green space along the Bourne and Palmers Field, can be included in the Plan in other ways, for example as part of the Parish’s green network.)

[i] National Planning Policy Framework 2019, para. 99.

Letters, forms and a map showing all the identified green spaces have been circulated to homes near the relevant areas.

If you live near an area and have not received the documents, you can download them here.  Please note they need to be returned by 17th February.  They can be emailed to aldbourne.np@gmail.com or handed in at the Post Office or Library.

CALL FOR SITES

(Now closed)

Aldbourne Parish Call for Sites for Housing to Meet Local Housing Needs     

Our particular focus is to seek sites for local and affordable need.

21ST OCTOBER TO 30th NOVEMBER 2019

A key and required stage for the Neighbourhood Development Plan is to establish a list of possible development sites that local landowners wish to put forward for consideration.

This process is termed a ‘Call for Sites’.  The Call for Sites began on 21st October and it was open for 6 weeks.

Any sites put forward will then be assessed by the Aldbourne Neighbourhood Development Plan Steering Group, supported by our consultants. Only after sharing the results with the community would any of those that came out with a positive assessment be considered for possible inclusion in the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

We asked the 6th Form at St. Michael’s School for their ideas on what they think their village will need in the future.  The images below show some very interesting ideas from the children.  Our thanks to St. Michael’s School.


OUR VILLAGE ENVIRONMENT,  ITS FACILITIES AND ITS FUTURE DEVELOPMENT MATTER TO ALL WHO LIVE IN THE VILLAGE AND PARISH.

YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN WILL GIVE OUR COMMUNITY A SAY ON THE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT THAT TAKES PLACE IN THE VILLAGE AND PARISH OF ALDBOURNE OVER THE NEXT 10 TO 20 YEARS.

A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN CAN:

  • Propose more development than in the Wiltshire Core Strategy
  • Shape and direct future development
  • Help to determine what type of development should take place
  • Identify the most suitable local sites for development

A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN CANNOT:

  • Propose less growth than in the Wiltshire Core Strategy
  • Prevent any development from ever taking place in an area
  • Be prepared with no input or support from the local community
  • Be in conflict with local, national or EU policies

WHAT DOES THE WILTSHIRE CORE STRATEGY MEAN FOR OUR COUNTY?

THE WILTSHIRE CORE STRATEGY AIMS TO:

    • Deliver a thriving economy
  • Address climate change
  • Provide everyone access to a decent home
  • Build resilient communities
  • Protect and enhance the natural, historic and built environment
  • Provide adequate infrastructure
