‘By 2031 we will have maintained and strengthened the characteristics of our rural moorlands village with an active, vibrant and sustainable community supporting a diverse economy with a range of services, facilities and homes designed to protect and enhance the special natural features and biodiversity of the area, thus improving the quality of life for its residents.’

The topics that come from that are

  • Housing requirements
  • Economic/ commercial
  • Biodiversity
  • Recreation
  • Sense of place
  • Infrastructure
  • Health and wellbeing

These will now be discussed and a set of objectives identified which will lead to the plan recommending policies from which we can start to make a set of selection criteria to judge all of the allocated/identified land for development

So on 14th 15th 16th Feb in the headmasters house we will be identifying the communities objectives.
