Neighbourhood Area designated

Our Neighbourhood Area, comprising the three parishes of Chapel & Hill Chorlton, Maer & Aston and Whitmore was formally designated by the Cabinet of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council at its meeting on 16 September 2015. Please seeĀ  the Borough’s website for further information. https://www.newcastle-staffs.gov.uk/all-services/planning/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning

This means that we can now formally start work on the Neighbourhood Development Plan. Although the Neighbourhood Plan Group had already held a few meetings informally, the it held its first formal meeting on Tuesday 29 September.

The Neighbourhood Plan Group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month in Whitmore Village Hall. Meetings start at 7.15pm and are open to the public. Please come along to ask questions, contribute your views or just learn what is happening!
