Why do we need a Neighbourhood Plan for Fairford?
We cannot change the past but we can, and must, plan for the future.
A Neighbourhood Plan is not just about future housing, but will also look at what needs to be done for employment and business growth, roads, drainage, schools, healthcare and other facilities for ALL the community, up until 2040.
The plan must be community driven, and represent the views and wishes of YOU, the residents of Fairford. Through this, YOU will be able to influence the future of Fairford.
This Neighbourhood Plan, when agreed, will have legal force, so the Planning authority (and Planning Inspectorate) will have to take notice of it.
