Neighbourhood Development Plan
Eardisland Neighbourhood Development Plan has completed examination and is now progressed to Referendum. The Plan for the Referendum and it's Annex can be accessed below, along with all other relevant documents.
What is the Neighbourhood Development Plan?
Our Plan will give us new rights to shape the development of Eardisland up to 2031. It will allow us to identify where development can be, what type of property can be built and to designate areas for open space, leisure, commerce and business. The Plan is in the very early stages of being written by a Steering Group on behalf of Eardisland Parish Council. Once you have had your input into the first draft, it will be available to all parishioners for further comment. The Plan will then be re-drafted to take account of your feedback and will be scrutinised by an independent national examiner to ensure conformity with local and national policy. Finally, the Plan will be subject to a referendum of all on the electoral roll for Eardisland Parish. With a simple majority, our Plan will become enshrined in law.
How does it affect me?
Our approved Plan will be used by Herefordshire Council to make decisions on all planning applications in Eardisland. It is vital that we come together now as residents of the Parish to share ideas and build consensus about what needs to be done within our community.
