Villagers in South Cambs have been given the chance to decide whether they want to shape their communities with the support of the district council.
A pack has been published by South Cambs District Council on how they will help parish councils to tackle a neighbourhood plan – a local planning document on the future of a village.
A six-week consultation opened today so parish councils can make sure the support is right for them and information is as easy to understand as possible.
Councillor Robert Turner, SCDC’s cabinet member for planning, said: “Neighbourhood planning is all about giving local communities more say about the future of their village.
“We recognise that preparing a neighbourhood plan can seem a bit of a challenge and our new initiative is responding to the questions our parishes have been raising. We want to make sure the process is as straightforward as possible for them and they are supported every step of the way.”
