Following the fantastic feedback from the consultation the NDP group is opening a Call for Sites. This is a call to all landowners in the parish, however large or small the area of land may be, who have an interest in promoting their land for development over a period from now until 2031. It is understood that any response to this ‘Call for sites’ is provisional and does not automatically bind a landowner to make any such provisions.
More details and the Call for Sites form can be found here (pdf) or here (doc).
Following the fantastic response we received to the consultation the NDP Working Group have meticulously analysed the 140 returned forms so that we can identify the major issues and give consideration to all the views contained in your replies.
The results of the analysis and outline proposals for the NDP based on this analysis will be presented at the meeting in St James’s Church on 2nd September at 3pm.
Come along to find out what the community as a whole has said about how any future development in the parish should be shaped.
An update about the NDP has been added to the NDP page. This update was printed in the September edition of The Bulletin and includes links to the the letters exchanged between the NDP Working Group and Terence O’Rourke. Rowan Woodhouse

As many people in the parish are aware, there has been much recent discussion about the possibility of future development in Milton Abbas. This has spurred on the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Group to gather the community’s collective view on the best way forward.
We will be holding an open meeting on 7:30pm Monday 23rd in St James’s Church to which anyone in the parish is invited to discuss the issues involved and a timetable for progressing our parish’s Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Susan & Rowan Woodhouse, on behalf of the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Group
