Local people are being encouraged to have their say on Boughton and Dunkirk’s neighbourhood plan while it’s available for public consultation.

Neighbourhood plans give local communities the opportunity to shape how future development is managed in their local area, giving people the opportunity to be involved in decisions that affect them.

The Boughton and Dunkirk neighbourhood plan, organised by parish councils in consultation with the local community, sets out to manage the challenges of future development until 2031 while maintaining a safe and affordable community where everyone has access to education, health and leisure facilities.

Cllr Mike Baldock, chair of the policy and resources committee at the council, said:

“The Boughton and Dunkirk neighbourhood plan outlines how the local community wants to manage future development while preserving the natural heritage of the area.

“The community is keen to maintain a safe and affordable place to live where families can raise children with access to schools, doctors and leisure facilities, and where elderly people who have lived their whole lives in the village can stay and be cared for.”

Cllr Monique Bonney, chair of the regeneration and property committee at the council, said:

“The Boughton and Dunkirk neighbourhood plan public consultation is now open and will be available for six weeks.

“I encourage anybody with an interest to have a look at the plan and a give their feedback, it’s important that provision is made for the future of the communities while preserving and protecting what we already have.”

The consultation runs from Monday, 13 June to Monday, 25 July.
