Vision4whaley, the name of the Whaley Bridge Neighbourhood Plan Group, is pleased to announce the launch of its new website which can be found at https://www.vision4whaley.org.uk.
The neighbourhood plan group is seeking to develop a set of specific policies which apply to the Whaley Bridge Parish through a process of public engagement and working groups of local residents.
The aim of these policies will be to ensure that future development is shaped to take account with the priorities and needs of the residents. Such policies will further develop the policies set out in the High Peak Local Plan, with a local perspective.
The process will be largely funded by central government through the Locality programme, with additional support from the Town Council (the lead organisation).
The plan will be subject to technical inspection and subject to public referendum, probably in 2021.
In order to find out more, please come and say hello at the Food at the Basin event this Saturday from 9.00 to 14.00, at Whaley Bridge Canal Basin in the Transhipment Warehouse.
