Consultation on Draft Selection Criteria

Checkley Parish Neighbourhood Plan has received through the call for sites for housing in the Parish 13 nominated sites.  These are spread across the 4 villages and range in scale from micro to large.

As part of the allocation process Upper Tean; Lower Tean; Checkley and Hollington Residents Associations have met to prepare the draft selection criteria.  This is your chance to comment on the draft selection criteria before it is finalised and the nominated sites are tested against it.

What Happens Next?

Once the selection criteria has been finalised and the sites tested, this information will be sent to AECOM who are providing through the Locality Neighbourhood Technical Support Programme a report on which of these chosen sites are viable and deliverable.


Checkley Parish Local Green Spaces Consultation

Local Green Spaces are areas of land that are of true value to the local community.

These green spaces have been nominated through community engagement over the past 18 months and we have tested these against the criteria set out in paragraph 100 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) July 2018 which states:

The Local Green Space designation should only be used where the green space is:

  1. in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;
  2. demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife; and
  3. local in character and is not an extensive tract of land.”

These sites were also originally tested against the NPPF 2012 paragraph 77 criteria.
