Three areas pioneer neighbourhood planning
7:00pm Tuesday 13th March 2012
Taunton Deane was one of 108 local authorities to be granted funding in the latest round of bids with £20,000 awarded to each of the Borough’s three pilot areas.
Cllr Mark Edwards, who holds the planning policy brief at the Borough Council, said: “There is going to be constant pressure for new housing and development within our communities and neighbourhood planning is one way of making sure that communities share in the decision-making process and have more influence over how communities will shape.
“These three areas of our district are all going to be under pressure over the next 20 years and this funding will give them the opportunity to shape that future.”
