What sort of place will your Little Aston be in 15 years time?23rd April 2013A Neighbourhood Plan for Little Aston

Why are we here?The Parish Council sees value in a Neighbourhood Plan for Little Astonbut not without the support of the communityTonight is about establishing how much interest there isWe want to inform, enthuse and ultimately get commitment from youWho are this Navigus Planning lot?We are planning consultants that specialise in helping to produce neighbourhood plansWe have been employed by the Parish Council to help with the technical aspectsWe are completely independent in this processWe have no direct interests in Little AstonOur brief is to ensure you have a plan which can make it through to adoption

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?It is a plan to direct the future development of land in Little Aston ward

Part of the development planPolicy for determining planning applicationsHas the same status as the Local Plan

IT WILL HAVE TEETHThe small printThis is the communitys plan, it seeks to deliver what you want but it does not automatically mean everything the community wants can go into the planLandowners, developers, Lichfield DC have a sayPlans must be deliverableThe small printCannot use the plan to say no

The plan is not about concreting over Little Astonbut it is not about stopping what is already planned eitherUltimately a good plan recognises the needs of all and can manage changeWhat happens if we dont produce a plan?Who knows? But you will have very little say in itOnly the District Councils plan will be used to determine applications in Little Aston
