What can an NP achieve – DESIGN?

What a Neighbourhood Plan could achieve

Built environment:

  • Wedmore’s Village Design Statement (VDS 2005) is adopted and still influences planning decisions
  • A NP would be an opportunity to review and update the VDS
  • This will carry greater weight once the NP is adopted.


  • Opportunities to protect the Conservation Area, including street and shop lighting, and signage.

What a Neighbourhood Plan could not achieve

  • The imposition of unreasonable design features on commercial developers.
