Weobley Neighbourhood Development Plan

Vision 2031

Why do we need to have a Neighbourhood Development Plan?
  • This is the next stage following the Weobley Parish Plan that was carried out in 2004 
  • To try and establish the best use of land in the village and surrounding parish 
  • It needs to agree with and sit with the Hereford Core Strategy which in turn sits within the National Plan. The Hereford Core Strategy has recently been revised and could mean that another 20 houses need to be built within the parish
  • The process involves the community
  • It enables the village to take a ‘good look’ at itself

What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

A Neighbourhood Development Plan is a community led document which sets out what the residents of Weobley Parish would like their parish to become by 2031. It will provide guidance for Herefordshire Council when they are planning for housing, business, community and leisure. 

What will it do?

It will be translated into planning policies with legal status that will guide and inform future local government plans for the development of the area – it will not stop housing development but may influence location, style and density

How can I take part?

On the 12th, 13th & 14th September there will be an open community event where you will be able to share your own and others ideas about what you might like to see in Weobley in term of housing, business and employment, community facilities and leisure opportunities, etc.  and where these might be located.  There will be maps of the parish for you to use and you will be invited to indicate where you think these things should happen.  We want as many people as possible to take part.

What then?

The views from the September event will be used to produce a survey that will be sent to every householder in the Parish.  The completed surveys will then be used to produce a draft report which will be open for everyone in the community to comment on before being finalised.

When does it start?

Work has already started.  There is a small Steering Group who are going to be contacting local businesses and community groups over the next few months to arrange meetings to hear their views.

Who can I talk to about it?

Lorraine Anderson (01544 319076)

Pru Lloyd (01544 318349)

Lyn Bruce (01544 319143)
