Fairwarp residents invited to comment on Neighbourhood Plan

THE VIEWS of Fairwarp residents on issues ranging from housing to healthcare are being sought by Maresfield Parish Council as part of its Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Plan aims to ‘ensure better lives for ourselves and future generations’ and the Parish Council believes communities should decide where development goes while maintaining the environment. They want suggestions concerning various elements of the Plan such as affordable housing for young and local workers, public transport, traffic calming, security in the area and increasing the bandwidth of the local broadband service. Due to the scale and size of the Plan, views on other key issues including infrastructure, businesses and conservation and are also welcomed. The final Plan will be decided locally subject to consultation, independent examination and local referendum. To submit views, ring: 01825 714555 or email: clerk@maresfieldparish.org.uk.
