What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan ?

A Neighbourhood Development Plan is a set of policies decided by the community. These policies indicate where and how land can be used, such as to develop housing, business premises and community facilities in a local area. It also considers how the environment will be protected. The plan also has a legal impact on planning applications, as the local authority must  refer to the plan when deciding planning applications.

The purpose of a Neighbourhood Plan

The purpose of a neighbourhood plan is to make Betley, Balterley and Wrinehill a better place by preparing and adopting a Neighbourhood Plan which will:

Influence and inform the local plan being prepared by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council.

Meet the aims and aspirations of the local community, groups, businesses and service providers.

To influence land use planning policies and proposals.

To guide future development; and to help determine planning applications.
