Sarratt Neighbourhood Plan
The working group has reviewed the initial consultations with selected organisations and businesses and will use this experience to design the next stage, which will roll out in the autumn. We have also met with selected professional advisers who will provide guidance and support on the technical aspects of the process. We expect to confirm an appointment shortly.
One aspect we should stress at this stage is that, when it comes to housing, the Plan will not include any discussion of specific sites for development. Rather, it will cover policies on what sort of developments the village would find acceptable. This is an emotive area and we will need to find the best consensus we can.
The web page on the Sarratt Village site will contain news, reference material and contact details as the process proceeds.
We cannot stress too often that the key to the success of the production of a Plan will be the involvement of residents. Over the next 9 months, parishioners will be given numerous opportunities to participate, so that the Plan represents a genuine consensus.
It will not be the Working Group’s Plan. It will be the Residents’ Plan.
Please help us make this a meaningful exercise.
We will be sending out regular updates through Spotlight and
Our meetings are open to the public, the next meeting being on
Monday 23 September in the back room of the Village Hall.
Look out for the consultation exercises we will be running, and
Please Get Involved.
