1 Herefordshire Local Plan Core Strategy 2011 – 2031 Community Infrastructure Levy Neighbourhood Planning Planning for the future of the County

2 Developing the Plan Unitary Development Plan 2007 policies “Saved” – policies still in use but are becoming out of date Herefordshire Local Plan Core Strategy – needed to take the main decisions on areas for growth and infrastructure Consultations that have already taken place: –2007 – Issues and Options –2008 – Developing Options –2010 – Place Shaping Paper and Preferred Options – Revised Preferred Options

3 Proper provision for new housing to meet requirements of an ageing population across the County – particularly meeting affordable needs. Achieving employment growth in key sectors to help to tackle low wage levels. Protecting and enhancing the unique environment of Herefordshire. Improving the County’s transport infrastructure. What we’re trying to achieve

4 Current population structure – county-wide (2011) Moving forward … Large numbers of people aged who over the next 20 years will move into retirement Improvements in life expectancy – more single person older households More older households with support needs Employment growth will require in-migration of younger households

5 The Vision for Herefordshire 2031 “Herefordshire will be a place of distinctive environmental, historical and cultural assets and local communities, with sustainable development fostering a high quality of life for those who live, work and visit here. A sustainable future for the county will be based on the interdependence of the themes of social progress, economic prosperity and environmental quality with the aim of increasing the county’s self- reliance and resilience.”

6 Because of changes in the population structure, 14,400 homes required just to maintain stable employment levels over next 20 years 16,500 new dwellings over the plan period will enable economic growth Based on County-wide rates of development this is a realistic level of growth over a 20 year period.

Neighbourhood Plans are produced by the community via their parish councils The Neighbourhood Planning team offers one to one support and advice for any parish undertaking a Neighbourhood Plan To get involved contact your local parish council

23 What is the Community Infrastructure Levy? The CIL is a new way for communities to benefit from built development taking place in their area. It is a fixed rate charge, based on square metres of built floorspace. The proceeds of the CIL will be spent on infrastructure to support the delivery of infrastructure for the county. Neighbourhoods who have drawn up a neighbourhood development plan will receive 25% of the CIL revenues. Those with parish plans will receive 15% of the CIL revenues.
