Slinfold needs a Neighbourhood Plan to... 

  • Empower the Community
  • Develop a shared vision for the Parish
  • Propose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built
  • Identify and protect important local green spaces 
  • Influence what new buildings should look like
Our Vision
Our vision is to ensure a sustainable rural community for everyone within the parish, embracing the countryside whilst providing for the future.

Our Aims
  • Encourage development of quality services and business opportunities that meet the needs of the local community, and protect and enhance the historical and local rural environment
  • Provide new and diverse leisure and recreational activities to promote engagement and well-being for all generations
  • Encourage new housing development that prioritises the needs of the community and supports the ethos of rural living.
  • Retain a village character with its individual vernacular, setting and green landscape

"If we don't have a plan, there will be a presumption in favour of development applications and our voice will not be heard"

"A Neighbourhood Plan must be community-led and evidence-based - we need your involvement!"

"We currently have 8 people fighting to save a village of over 2,000 people; we can't do it on our own."

" Slinfold's Neighbourhood Plan is a unique opportunity to shape the future of our parish."

"It will influence development in the Parish over the next 15 years"
