Gamlingay’s Draft Neighbourhood Plan – the next Consultation

In October 2019 the volunteers of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group held a consultation on a draft summary of the Neighbourhood Plan. This was intended to inform community of the direction of travel of the Group's thinking and to gain an idea of the level of support that it would muster.

There were 151 responses and the overall result was positive. However, there were many questions and some objections to way the draft Plan was presented. These questions and views have been taken into account for the Plan, drafting of which continues.

Please see in the sidebar (at right) for links to the original questions and the summarised results.

The Draft Plan

The draft plan was based on all the survey feedback and evidence gathered over the previous couple of years and had objectives and policies which focused on:

• Supporting new housing that’s appropriate size, affordable and adaptable
• Protecting the open countryside and Gamlingay’s distinct landscape setting as a radial village with satellite hamlets and smallholdings
• Nurturing and growing local businesses in the Parish
• Ensuring local facilities meet the needs of our community
• Developing a network of footpaths to promote walking, cycling and riding
• Enhancing the natural environment and biodiversity of the Parish
