In January GPC appointed a Neighbourhood Plan committee within the Parish Council which would set up a Steering Group to include interested residents in the parish. Since then a mission statement has been approved:
“To maintain Goostrey as a desirable and attractive rural village in which to live, supporting a high quality of life for all residents and businesses. Any future changes or developments shall be determined for the long term benefit of the whole community.”
It has been agreed with CEC to use the parish boundary as the area but it is still to be decided whether to create Strategies and Policies or Site Allocations. However residents have not yet been invited to say if they are interested in joining the Steering Committee and it was discussed at this months pc meeting that the next NP meeting might not be until September.
