April Update

We have now embarked upon the next phase in the completion of our Plan and need your involvement.

We have previously compiled a list of objectives to help achieve the chosen mission statement:

To protect and enhance the rural identity and heritage of our village whilst ensuring its future sustainability

Now, each Working Group is now turning them into Policies, compliant with the Vale’s Local Plan Part 1.&2.

In order to substantiate these policies, we need

  • A character assessment of our village at present
  • A landscape assessment of our surroundings and
  • A Housing Survey, to identify our future needs

In April we will be distributing to all residents, a  Questionnaire seeking more data and your opinions relating to existing and future housing within our Parish.

Once again we will be asking for your assistance in distributing and completing this important piece of work.

We will also be convening another Open meeting to present & discuss our draft polices, later in the month. So please look out for our notices, for further details.

Update

Having spent the last year since the Residents Questionnaire collating evidence and completing the Baseline Assessment and Scoping Report, we are now embarking upon the next phase in the completion of our Plan.

With your help we have compiled a list of objectives to help achieve the chosen mission statement:

To protect and enhance the rural identity and heritage of our village whilst ensuring its future sustainability

And must now turn them into Policies, compliant with the Vale’s Local Plan Part 1. Then in a few months’ time these will be put to you all for approval via a referendum.

With advice from the Vale, we have chosen to follow the path recently used successfully by Blewbury Parish Council involving the production of

  • A character assessment of our village at present
  • A landscape assessment of our surroundings and
  • A housing survey, to identify our future needs

In the New Year we will be distributing another Residents Questionnaire seeking more data and your opinions relating to existing and future housing within our Parish.

Once again we will be asking for your assistance in distributing and completing this important piece of work.

The current NDP group is a mix of Councilors and residents that came together originally early in 2015. If you would like to join us, as we embark on the final phase, please contact us, either via our clerk or our website: https://steventonnp.wordpress.com ,or email: steventonneigh@gmail.com

 

Village Character Assessment

We are pleased to report that we have almost completed the first phase of our Neighbourhood Plan, as our Scoping Report is going out for Consultation shortly.

We now need your help with the second phase, a street by street survey to assess the character of our village.

 

It will entail a small group of 4 residents recording the types of housing and other features that exist within a defined area of the village.

We hope to have enough volunteers to divide the village into approx. 7 areas.

We will provide a template to record the data and explanatory notes, all you will need to provide is your time and a camera from within your group.

We hope to conduct this survey within the next 4 weeks and to this end will be holding a briefing meeting on Wednesday 21st September at 7pm in the North Star

 

Please could you indicate, by email steventonneigh@gmail.com, whether you are

  1. a) able to assist and
  2. b) can make the meeting

so we can get an idea of the expected no.s attending

 

Many Thanks
