Delivery Phase


The principle output of the Delivery Phase is a draft plan.  Although there are no set guidelines for what a neighbourhood plan should contain it is likely that a plan will comprise a series of policies, associated explanatory text and maps which detail the policies and proposals. The policies must be linked to the development and use of land. Our neighbourhood plan might:


  • Identify areas of land for housing and/or economic development in accordance with the VOWH Plan.
  • Outline specific requirements for development including characteristics such as design, density and type of housing.
  • Include distinct local policies to help meet the specific issues and challenges identified through the scoping exercise. Policies and proposals contained within the Neighbourhood Plan should be realistic and achievable. They must also follow some ground rules including:
    • Generally conforming with local and national planning policies
    • Being in line with other laws including various EU Directives, namely Environmental Impact Assessment/Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)/Water Framework Directive/Habitats Directive.

Linking the Vision and Objectives to Policies

The confirmed Vison and Objectives feed through into any new policies required to ensure that, as far as possible, any new developments meet the needs and aspirations of the community.  The diagram below shows this in a very simple way.


The diagram below shows how the Vision feeds through to the final UBW objectives and any policies required to meet them.


Who will do the necessary work?

Having divided up the necessary work into logical blocks, it's necessary to identify just who will do the work necessary to identify the areas where the community would most like any new housing to be built and to create any new policies necessary to preserve and enhance the environment of the three villages and surrounding areas.


The Steering Group considered how best to achieve this and created separate groups, each aligned with a main topic area to take the work forward.  These groups are called Focus Groups and are shown in the rounded shapes below.  The diagram also shows how these cover the topics and objectives and some of the main areas they will examine.  Further details of the work of each group is given under each heading on the left.
