Neighbourhood Plan

The Woodhouse Neighbourhood Plan is now at Submission stage.

Over the past two years, the Parish Council, in conjunction with local residents and other stakeholders, has undertaken extensive consultation to gather the views of the community about how Woodhouse should develop over the coming years in support of the Neighbourhood Plan. This includes a range of well attended consultation exercises and groups of residents who have met to gather evidence in support of the emerging policies over a long period of time.
