Neighbourhood Plan






The Tredington Parish Neighbourhood Plan, the story so far…….

APRIL 2019

The ‘Call for Sites’ elicited a total of five responses.

Three in Tredington, two in Blackwell: none in Newbold-on-Stour.

Blackwell is not a ‘Service Village’ and accordingly matters relating to housing development in Blackwell, as well as in Darlingscott and Armscote, are outside the remit of the Neighbourhood Plan and the two Blackwell land owners concerned will be informed accordingly.

The three from Tredington will be presented to public meetings on Friday 7th June 6.0 to 7.30, and Saturday 8th June 10.0 to 11.30. It had been intended to hold these meetings in Newbold-on-Stour but as no responses to the call for sites have been received from Newbold-on-Stour the meetings will be at the WI Hall Tredington. Prior to this meeting there will be a meeting in public on Wednesday 1st May at 6.0pm at the Fuzzy Duck Armscote.

At the recent Steering Group meeting the responses to the Call for Sites were discussed as well as  the need for adequate parking and green spaces, identification and designation of Green Spaces and the potential needs of the Primary School in Tredington, in light of the expanding number of children anticipated in the new houses.

Appropriate large scale maps will be on display at the public meeting at the WI hall. The community is strongly encouraged to attend and express their opinions. All opinions will be anonymously collected.  This will be your opportunity to express your views.

After the public meeting our independent Planning Consultant will be asked to carry out Site Assessments of both potential development sites and sites identified as potential Designated Green Spaces.

The Group has established that there is currently very limited demand for additional business units or industrial units within the Parish.

Funding for those qualifying bodies wishing to establish a Neighbourhood Plan is provided by Locality, an organisation set up, and financed, by National Government. The Group has been fortunate in obtaining all the grant funding applied for in each of the last 2 years. But at the end of each grant funding year, March 31st, a detailed report must be provided to Locality, any unspent monies returned, and a further grant application submitted as necessary. With the help and support of the Parish Clerk this is in progress.

Tredington Parish Community Organisations

Tredington Parish embraces a number of organisations and facilities, all of which help foster warm community relations. In many cases, funding is supported either by voluntary fund-raising projects and events organised by residents and members, or by the generosity of local sponsors, private donors and businesses.

Below is a list of the organisations the Neighbourhood Plan Group has interviewed. The import of the meetings has been carefully documented and will be retained as part of the Neighbourhood Plan evidence base.
