Do you want a say in the type of houses that are built within the Parish and to know that the planners at Rugby Borough Council (RBC)have to listen to you?

Do you want a say in the sustainability of our community?

Do you want a say in the type of houses and built environment if Houlton Development moves closer to the village?

Do you want a say in how we maintain the character of the village?

If your answer is yes to the above then get involved in the development of the Neighbourhood Plan (NP)!

The Parish Council has submitted its application to RBC for the Parish of Clifton upon Dunsmore to be a designated a Neighbourhood area for the purposes of the plan.

Once the Neighbourhood Plan is written and approved by an inspector any developer seeking planning approval will have to conform to the NP, if it doesn’t, RBC planners cannot approve it!  This will be an investment of your time, knowledge and skills but, it ensures that we have policies and a planning framework for the future.

The Parish Council has engaged consultancy firm Your Locale to help us develop the NP – at no cost.

We will be organising a meeting early March and introducing Gary Kirk from Your Locale. If you are interested in being part of this forward-thinking plan for our community then please contact Lesley Edwards on
