Read About Parish Plans
There are three alternatives that local communities can consider using to influence or lead local planning policies, a Design Statement, a Parish Plan and a Neighbourhood Plan.
While the Parish Council is keen to get approval for the draft Parish Plan which will provide some protection for the village, there has been some enthusiasm shown by residents for going the next stage and developing a Neighbourhood Plan for the village.
A presentation for Silverstone residents on 'Parish and Neighbourhood Plans' took place at South Northamptonshire Council's The Forum, on Tuesday January 17th 2017, and was attended by 36 residents including 7 Parish Councillors.
Whether to approve a motion to proceed to register to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for Silverstone will be debated by councillors and voted upon at the Parish Council meeting on 13th February.
