Neighbourhood Plan

The joint West Monkton & Cheddon Fitzpaine Neighbourhood Development Plan (WM&CFP NDP) covers the parishes of West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine.  We will see significant growth in the coming years.  Through policies in the NDP we aim to ensure that development:

·         is successfully accommodated;

·         is sustainable, with excellent community facilities and high quality design;

·         respects the historic environment and surrounding countryside is protected and enhanced.

Once made the WM&CFP NDP will be used by TDBC when assessing planning applications in the NDP area.

Both Parish Councils have worked together with volunteers for over 18 months to produce the draft NDP which includes 15 policies.

Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Meetings:

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group oversee the development of the NDP for both Parish Councils. Meetings are usually on the second Tuesday of the month. Even if you haven’t been able to come to any of the previous meetings, you are more than welcome to attend. Please contact the Clerk for date and location.
