Parishes throughout the country are being encouraged by the Government to draw up neighbourhood plans setting out how they believe their communities should be developed over the next twenty years. The principle underlying it is the much touted notion of ‘localism’ and the idea that local people are better placed to shape the communities they live in than central government.

The view of the Parish Council is that it is critical for the future of West Grinstead Parish that we seize this opportunity. A Working Group has therefore been set up made up of some parish councillors and a few interested residents and members of the business community. It is not though too late to volunteer.
