October 2017 Up-date

As a result of your responses to the draft vision statement in the First Questionnaire, the Vision for the Neighbourhood Plan has been expanded as follows:


“The Wybunbury Parishes will remain distinct, rural communities and the tranquil    setting of the area will be maintained. This rural and individual character will be acknowledged by the adoption of appropriate building styles, choice of local materials, appropriate densities and levels of green infrastructure which reflect and enhance the local character.

Moving forward we want to maintain the Wybunbury Parishes as thriving local and   independent communities. We will ensure their long-term future by working to meet the needs of those who live and work here and those who visit the area.”


The Wybunbury Combined Parishes Neighbourhood Plan needs to be aspirational but also realistic!

In order to achieve the Vision and in response to the issues residents have raised in the First Consultation and Five-Year Housing Survey (April 2017), we have identified the following aims:

(1) Any new homes in the area should respond positively to identified housing needs

(2) The Open Countryside between settlements should be protected to maintain the     character and integrity of each of the settlements in the Neighbourhood Plan area.

(3) The impact of traffic on the local communities should be reduced.

(4) Any new development should be supported by appropriate infrastructure.

(5) Access to the countryside is maintained and improved, including the connectivity       between settlements and the surrounding area by footpaths and cycleways.

(6) The natural and built environment of the parishes, including their landscape, built      heritage, archaeological sites and wildlife habitats are protected and enhanced.

(7) Businesses are supported and new enterprises appropriate to the character of the area will be encouraged.

(8) To keep housing development small in scale, designed to a high quality which is      sustainable and complimentary to the character of the immediate area.
