Stirchley & Brookside Parish Council have agreed that they will develop a neighbourhood plan. A neighbourhood plan is a new way of helping local communities to influence development in their area. It can develop a shared vision for our neighbourhood; choose where new homes, shops and offices and other development should be built; identify and help protect important local green spaces or influence what new buildings should look like.
It is important that the whole community is involved in developing the plan. We will be looking for volunteers to help identify issues in the parish, develop a vision and help with consultation. Once the plan is developed a referendum will be held and if the majority of the people voting agree with the plan it will be adopted.

The Neighbourhood Plan will need to take into account the: National Planning Policy Framework, Telford & Wrekin Council'sCore Strategy Development Plan and the Wrekin Area Plan
In April the project received a much needed boost in the form of a grant of £3,300 awarded by the Supporting Communities in Neighbourhood Planning Programme led by Locality in association with RTPI/Planning Aid England, CDF and partners available through the My Community Rights Website. This has enabled us to recieve support from Margaret at Planning for Real.
