VISION4WHALEY

Our Neighbourhood Plan Working Towards a Brighter Future

 

VISION4WHALEY AT A GLANCE

We're developing a vision for our town and we need your help.

The Neighbourhood Plan will affect everyone in Whaley Bridge.

Without a Neighbourhood Plan in place, any proposed development in our area  will be determined in accordance with the High Peak Borough Council's Local Plan, generally speaking without specific policies for Whaley Bridge.  The Local Plan covers the period up to 2032.

A Neighbourhood plan offers us an opportunity to define a level of detail which is specific to our own area. After an approval process, the detail in the Neighbourhood Plan will sit alongside HPBC’s  Local Plan and allows  us  have a measure  of local control over development which occurs here.  It means that we can really make a difference to how Furness Vale and Whaley Bridge develops up till 2032.

Now named ‘Vision4Whaley’ our Neighbourhood Plan covers the whole of the area including Whaley Bridge, Furness Vale, Taxal and Fernilee, some of which is in the Peak District National Park.

Vision4Whaley is organised by a small group of Volunteers and is supported and partly funded by Whaley Bridge Town Council

 

LATEST NEWS

The public consultation is now complete for Regulation 14

Thank you to everyone who took part in the six week consultation which ended 2nd July 2022.

What happens next?

Your comments will be considered by the V4W Steering Group and a final Plan put forward to High Peak Borough Council. After this the next steps will be to get The Plan approved by High Peak Borough Council and finally put it to a local referendum.
Once accepted, it will be used to shape planning policy over the next 10 years. The final plan will be taken into account when the Council is weighing up new proposals for housing or industrial development in the area.
