At the Parish Council meeting held on 6th November 2017 HPC agreed to embark on a Neighbourhood Plan supported by consultants and appointing a Steering group to run the plan on their behalf.
The group has held several public events and ran a questionnaire to obtain parishioners opinion on various topics that will make up the Neighbourhood Plan. A website www.horsmondenNP.co.uk. has been launched which will be act as a depository for information produced during that process.
The results from the questionnaire are now being analysed and will inform the various working groups about the views and importance of elements of the Neighbourhood Plan. These results will be summarised in a report which will be posted in the Spring 2019. The results highlighted some key information regarding demographics of the parish, working patterns, safety concerns, housing and recreational requirements that will form the basis of the Interim Report.
Working Groups are now being formed and have held their first meetings to develop policies that will go towards the Neighbourhood Plan.
