EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

There is very strong agreement that the character of the village be preserved and that possible environmental policies should conserve the pattern and layout of buildings, footpaths and open spaces in the village.

For future development, homes dedicated for local people and low cost starter homes to own are preferred.

Any future development should be in clusters of 10 houses or fewer. Different types of houses are preferred and linked into the existing pavement network.

The design of these homes should be in keeping with the scale, location and appearance of existing buildings.

Residents are against allowing development in residential gardens.

The level of noise and pollution from development and transport infrastructure needs minimalising.

There is little importance given to dark skies so policies alluding to this would not likely to be supported.

A comprehensive Green Spaces Plan should be commissioned. More tree planting and greater protection of existing mature or important trees has strong support.

Residents are very supportive of maintaining and improving the present green spaces and recreational areas.

Parking vehicles is commonly off the roads, but there is a perception there are badly parked cars on the highways and generally a lack of spaces. Like many areas, speeding is a problem that needs addressing as well.

More frequent buses would be appreciated.

Residents want a new surgery to be built at the edge of the village, with greater provision of parking spaces.

The Plan should look to encourage more local businesses and more local jobs.
