Skillington Neighbourhood Plan is an important planning document which will shape the future of our community over the next fifteen years. It is relevant to all parishioners and those who value our unique heritage and sense of community. By preparing a neighbourhood plan the Parish Council is taking the opportunity to influence the type, scale and design of any development which can take place within the Parish.

This plan has been produced by the Steering Group, which reports to the Parish Council. The summary of information on who lives in Skillington and their views on the character of the village and any future development is based on the survey carried out last year. The document has been drafted with the invaluable advice of Bob Keith, our planning consultant, who has worked on a number of Neighbourhood Plans.


Before formally submitting this draft Plan to SKDC, we need to hear your views. Once these have been taken into account the revised draft will be submitted to SKDC for independent examination. Any further necessary changes will be made before the plan is submitted to a referendum of electors, probably in the spring of 2017.

Please use the Response Form to provide any comments whether of agreement or disagreement.
