In 2015, the Parish Council backed the production of a Neighbourhood Plan for the whole of the Parish of Scothern.
A good Neighbourhood Plan considers all aspects of its community. Ours will cover businesses, schools, medical facilities, environmental concerns, community facilities and housing. Once adopted, a plan has to be taken into account in planning decisions and will endure for twenty years. Scothern will inevitably change and grow but we can influence how and where that happens.
As a resident of the Parish of Scothern, you have already helped form the vision and objectives of the Plan. There will be more opportunities for you to have your say as the Plan develops. Scothern Parish Council asked for volunteers to help create the Plan and a Steering Group was formed. The work of the group, alongside other important documents, can be reviewed via this page.
