Hi Everyone,

I’m Faye and I’m a new Neighbourhood Planning Champion. I’m Clerk to Swanton Morley PC and we are fairly early on in our NP – just starting to develop our policies. I am also in my 4th year of the SLCC’s foundation degree course in Community Governance, in which I have specialised in Sustainable Development and Community Engagement.
I wanted to become a NP planning champion, particularly to work with our LPA to encourage Neighbourhood Planning. To date, they have been rather ‘lukewarm’ about it (which is perhaps an understatement)! I was wondering if there are any other guys on this forum who have experience with LPA’s who have been obstructive?
Part of the reason for their lack of interest in Neighbourhood Planning is their lack of 5 year Housing Land Supply. I see some really good threads on this forum to see that they are not alone in this.
I also love the thread about Low Carbon Neighbourhood Planning. Given me some great ideas 🙂
Any way – enough of me for now. I hope to meet up with you guys soon.
