About Neighbourhood Planning

Cheshire Community Action gave an excellent talk at our Annual Parish Meeting on 20th April to explain what a Neighbourhood Plan is and the benefits it can bring a community to be able to have a say in shaping its future not just in determining future housing in the parish but other aspects such as green space, cycling, parks etc.

However, Neighbourhood Plans are a lot of work to put together and would require the community of Church Lawton to work together. It is important that the community recognise that the Parish Council cannot do this alone.

For those who were unable to attend the Annual Parish Meeting but would like to know more, some links are provided below:
