A chance to have a say on the future development of Tollerton ends on 12 June.
The views of residents are currently being sought to shape a new Neighbourhood Plan for Tollerton that will help guide future development.
We need the views of residents and the community to shape our neighbourhood plan. Comments can be provided using the online survey or a paper copy can be returned to the post office, parish rooms or pub. Comments must be in by 12 June.
Tollerton Parish Council started the formal process to develop a Neighbourhood Plan last year by asking Rushcliffe Borough Council to designate the whole of the parish of Tollerton as a “neighbourhood plan area”. Other villages such as Keyworth and Radcliffe are already working on similar plans.
The new Plan must fit with the Rushcliffe Borough Council Local Plan and cannot overrule the housing growth that has already been agreed so it is inevitable that significant new development will occur within Tollerton. This is currently expected to be 4000 homes in the area sometimes referred to as East of Gamston that forms part of Tollerton.
If approved by Tollerton residents through a referendum, the Tollerton Neighbourhood Plan will have legal force and developers and local authority planners will have to take notice of it. The Neighbourhood Plan is likely to focus on ensuring that there are appropriate facilities and infrastructure to meet the needs of current and future residents and protecting the identity of the existing village.
The survey runs until 12 June.
