In 2011 the Government published the Localism Act which means that local people will be able to have a far greater say over the future of the Parish in which they live.
Going forward you will be asked for your views on issues such as the siting of housing, parking, Green Belt, infrastructure and many other topics with the aim to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan for Winkfield.
Once approved by referendum, the Plan will be adopted by BFC and will become the Local Planning Policy. This means your views will have been considered.
Following detailed research and the gathering of information the Parish Council has been involved in forming a Steering Group. The Steering Group is comprised mainly of residents from nine settlements across the Parish:
plus three Parish Councillors.
Please do make contact with your local community representatives (Resident Associations, etc) to understand the part you can play now and in the future in helping to deliver a successful Plan which will ultimately enhance living in Winkfield for our families and friends.
We have engaged the services of a Neighbourhood Planning Consultant to guide us through the process. The process seemed daunting but now with the help and support of the consultants and a very active and keen Steering Group we are making ground and moving forward.
