Halstead Parish Council: Neighbourhood Plan

Halstead Parish Council is looking to develop a Neighbourhood Plan which would give our community statutory powers to shape how we develop. 

The first step of the plan is to have our area designated - to show which areas this plan will and won’t cover. This designation has to be consulted on by the community via Sevenoaks District Council and that is currently underway. To make an comment please find the consultation here. 

The neighbourhood plan takes a lot of work to develop. The development will be led by the Parish council but will need parishioners help and input to build a fully formed and well rounded plan that suits the entire neighbourhood. 

If you think you’d like to help in any way then please contact the clerk and let her know.
