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 Councils 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 over the next 12 years 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
