What is the Edlesborough Neighbourhood Plan

The Edlesborough Neighbourhood Plan (ENP) is the emerging development plan for the Edlesborough Neighbourhood Area, coving the same are as the Parish, for the plan period of 2013-2033. On adoption it will form part of the Development Plan, which planning applications in that area will be assessed against. The ENP is a comprehensive plan which has policies that look to shape development across the parish and its three villages of Edlesborough, Northall and Dagnall. The plan proposes four housing allocations for up to 76 dwellings and allocates a reserve site for up to 40 dwellings across the villages of Edlesborough and Northall. The plan further reserves land for the expansion of the Primary School and Health Centre as well as the designation of 8 Local Green Spaces across the three villages. The plan further supports infill development, economic expansion and the protection and enhancement of community facilities.
