Regulation 14 Public Consultation

Herefordshire Council's Core Strategy requires parishes with villages to accommodate some new housing over the next 15 years. A local Steering Group comprising a number of Parish Councillors and members from the communities has prepared a Draft Plan which proposes ways in which this requirement could be met.

Without a plan prepared by community representatives we would have to rely upon either:
- Developers putting forward their own proposals to meet and potentially exceed the Core Strategy targets; or
- Wait until Herefordshire Council prepares a plan for the villages where development is required.

The Steering Group has tried to plan positively for development required to meet local, county and national needs as required by the neighbourhood planning regulations and to address a number of issues raised within the two Parishes.

The Draft Neighbourhood Plan:

Identifies sites for new dwellings within each of the 2 villages.

Sets out policies on design, protecting green space, flooding, and sewerage, among others.

Copies are also available to browse or borrow at several locations in both Orleton and Richards Castle. All comments must be received by 5.00 pm on Monday 20th June 2016.
