The Government introduced a ‘Neighbourhood Planning scheme’ which allows Parish residents to have their say regarding our village and its future.
A Neighbourhood Plan summarises the views of the local community in terms of:
Development – housing, offices, factories, shops, leisure facilities
Infrastructure – green open spaces, play facilities, village shop, schools
All development within our local area should meet the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The Government passed the Localism Bill in November 2011. It means that approved Neighbourhood Plans are protected by law and have to be taken into consideration when future development is proposed. Test Valley Borough Council have a requirement to build many additional homes. Most of them are currently planned for Andover, Romsey and other urban areas. However, some will need to be absorbed within the Test Valley villages, and this could include Goodworth Clatford.
