Neighbourhood Planning application due soon

Board members are currently preparing proposals for an application for the Corbett Estate to become an officially designated Neighbourhood Forum.

Under new powers given to local communities by the Government, setting up a neighbourhood forum would allow residents living on the Corbett Estate to draw up a neighbourhood plan that would have the same legal status as those developed by the council and allow residents to decide where new homes, shops and offices will go and what facilities, services and infrastructure is needed.
