The Parish Council and village volunteers will prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for Gamlingay Parish. A Neighbourhood Plan is a new way for local people to influence the planning and development of the area in which they live and work.
We can influence development – not stop it altogether – so we have to plan what sort of development we want in our village, maintaining the good bits, improving the less good bits and making the process of having more homes as sustainable and worthwhile as possible.

There was a survey, the deadline for which was 12 November 2016, which saw over 400 returns for the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group to analyse. Once that analysis is complete, the Steering Group will draft a Plan for the village to study and to vote on in a referendum.
The Steering Group has the results of the survey, but the answers require a fair amount of work to analyse them and to use them for the Neighbourhood Plan. We will produce the results as soon as we can present them properly.
