Neighbourhood planning gives communities a role in the development and future of their local area. The 20 planning policies in the draft Stapleford and Great Shelford Neighbourhood Plan address our community’s concerns and aspirations around housing, landscape, active travel, traffic management, climate change and biodiversity, community amenities and infrastructure, and countryside access. They will carry the same weight as those in South Cambs District Council’s Local Plan and will be used when reviewing all planning applications coming forward in our area. This, then, is your chance to shape where you live for the better.
