It will set out how development should occur in future years and will be used to inform local planning decisions. It can also set out land use for facilities, infrastructure, housing and employment.
The Mayor, said, “For too long decisions have been made about development in Ringwood, solely based on the Local Plan for the district, which doesn’t necessarily meet many of the needs of local people.”
The chairman of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group said, “Developing a Neighbourhood Plan is about all of us, the people of Ringwood, having a say in the development of our town. So we need people to join in and give their views.”
Currently four teams are forming to look at different aspects of the Plan – town centre, design and heritage, environment and housing
