Have say on neighbourhood plan for Calverton


Calverton Parish Council are inviting people to have their say on a draft neighbourhood plan proposal for the area.

Calverton was designated as neighbourhood area in 2013.

The plan consists of four main sections. These are growth, infrastructure, services and facilities, built environment and natural environment.

The plans are to be submitted to Gedling Borough Council in November this year.

Cllr Mike Hope, who is the working group lead, said: “Calverton has been identified by Gedling Borough Council for significant growth, particularly housing. The Neighbourhood Plan aims to ensure that growth will not spoil what is special in the village and ensure that growth is accompanied by improvements to local services and facilities.”

A series of drop-in sessions are being planned so residents can view the plans and also have their say.

They will take place at the Baptist Church on Main Street on the following dates:

Gedling Borough Council will organise an independent examination of the plan after the submission and then carry out the necessary public referendum to agree it during 2017.
