Silverstone residents are another step closer to having more of a say in the future of their community following the adoption of a parish plan and design statement.
 
At a meeting of South Northamptonshire Council’s (SNC) Planning Policy and Regeneration Strategy Committee on Wednesday, 14 June 2017, members met to consider the Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement and whether to adopt it as a supplementary document (SPD).
 
The purpose of a parish plan and design statement is to inform what is important to the community and identify priority areas and actions for the next five to 10 years, as well as how the parish might be protected and enhanced to retain its character.
 
Cllr Roger Clarke, SNC’s portfolio holder for planning, said: “Protecting the district is one of our core objectives at SNC. So it’s important that we empower local people to make a difference where they can and ensure they have a say in the future of their community, for them and for generations to come.
 
“The Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement is a great example of localism at work and paves the way for more communities to do the same.”
 
The Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement has been five years in the making and has been produced in conjunction with Silverstone Parish Council. Much of it is based on a questionnaire carried out in 2012 by the parish council.
 
In addition to this, a consultation took place using the Silverstone village website as well as a public exhibition held in December 2016. The parish council also consulted public and regulatory bodies over a period of six weeks on the draft document.
