Holwell Parish Council - Land Availability 'call for sites'

Do you know of any land or premises that you think might be suitable for housing or employment use?

Holwell Parish Council is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan under the provisions of the Localism Act 2012.   As part of its work in assessing future development needs, the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group are calling upon landowners and managers of land within the Parish of Holwell for expressions of interest in applying for future development permission to help identify sites that they believe may have potential for development over the next 15 years and beyond.

If you are aware of any site(s) that may have development potential please let us know by completing and submitting a Site Submission form available by mailing holwellneighbourhoodplan@gmail.com.   Paper copies of the form can also be requested using the same contact details.

If you are unsure whether to submit a site, you may prefer to have a brief informal discussion with us before doing so.   If so, please call Sally-Anne Holt - Chair, Neighbourhood Plan Working Group on 01963 23349.  

All site owner details submitted as part of the 'call for sites' will remain confidential. To be assessed,  sites will need to be submitted by Friday 28th October 2016.

Welcome to information about the Neighbourhood Plan for Holwell village.

Holwell Parish Council wish to maintain Holwell Parish as a thriving rural community and to ensure its long term future by working towards meeting the needs of those who wish to live and work in this community.   

A Neighbourhood Plan gives local people a genuine opportunity to be part of a community that will guide the future development, regeneration and conservation of their area by preparing a plan under the control and guidance of Holwell Parish Council. 

The Parish Council set up a working group in 2013 who undertook some initial work on the Plan.   However, this plan must be one that the community of Holwell produce and vote on, giving residents the opportunity to influence the future of the area.   It can cover a broad agenda or just focus on a few key issues that concern the population of Holwell.  

To make further progress with producing this plan, we are holding a Village Meeting so every member of the community can learn about the process we need to follow and have their say

The Village Meetings will take place in the Village Hall on

THURSDAY 14th APRIL from 7.30 pm & SATURDAY 16TH APRIL from 10.30
