Welcome to the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) website.

Latest Position  (08/02/2018)

See the SCHEDULE page for the timetable for the referendum

HDC's cabinet has approved our Neighbourhood Plan and it can now proceed to referendum on the 1st March 2018 - see News item for more details.

HDC has now produced the referendum version of the plan and a copy is now in the Document Library (see second item in documents folder - hwnp-a-referendum version ..).

There is now an 'information for voters' document in the Document Library (first item) which provides details on how to vote and where to view relevant documents.

Date for referendum by parishioners is 1 March 2018


The purpose of this website is to:

-  provide information about the process for  developing the NDP and the progress to date.

- publish feedback from the survey and consultations. 

- allow you to access the various documents supporting the development of the NDP.

- provide access to the draft sections of the NDP as they are developed

- allow downloading of these documents for you to read offline and print if required.

All the above documents will be found (when published) in the Document Library on the navigation bar at the top of this page.

Note that items on the navigation bar with arrow heads to their right have subordinate pages so hover over the item to see them.

See the SUBMISSION VERSION page for access to the documents and comments.

The Submission Version has now being examined by the appointed planning inspector and she had provided the Fact Check version of the Independent Examiner's Report.

See the SCHEDULE page for dates and EXAMINATION & REFERENDUM page for the final steps in this process.

HDC and the Parish Council (via the NDP Working Group) have now agreed the policy wording and supporting statements and evidence  for both the built-up area and the Anti-Coalescence between the Parish and St Ives.

The consultation for the above has ended and some comments were of such significance that HDC has decided that these changes need to go before another appointed planning inspector.  HDC have appointed an inspector who has completed his review and made recomendations which have been reviewed by the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group and HDC. It is expected that wording for the 2 policies (see below) will soon be agreed by the 3 parties and a date fixed for the referendum!



We live in a beautiful village and parish and the aim of the Neighbourhood Plan is to protect its heritage for the future, preserve and improve the quality of life and meet the changing needs of the residents.
