WHAT IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

A Neighbourhood Plan is a way of helping local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live in work, giving them more control over the type, location, size, pace and design of development in their area, while taking into account national, regional and borough planning requirements.

With the support of the Town Council, an advisory group has been set up with a view to preparing a report on the viability of producing a Neighbourhood Plan for Horwich and associated tasks leading to its adoption. The group consists of three Town Councillors and interested residents and members with various skills and experience.

Horwich Town Council while having lead responsibility for neighbourhood planning in Horwich acknowledges that the content of the Plan must be driven by the community, drawing on skills and expertise of local people to ensure high levels of community engagement throughout the whole process.

PLANNING HAS TENDED TO EXCLUDE, RATHER THAN TO INCLUDE PEOPLE & COMMUNITIES

WE ARE ALLOWING PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES BACK INTO PLANNING.
