Both local planning authorities are required to support the preparation of a neighbourhood plan. Any neighbourhood plan must comply with the local plans for both local authority areas but there is scope to influence the location and type of development that the community feels is appropriate to protect and enhance the village and its countryside context.
Under the Localism Act 2011 the designation permits the Dore Village Society to prepare a neighbourhood plan that can make planning policies to reflect the local community’s views on new development in the area for the next 15-20 years. This is a good reason for members of the community becoming members of Dore Village Society. If you live or work in the village your membership will be welcomed.
Work on the Plan has commenced, encouraged by the two local planning authorities. The initial work has been based on the Village Design Statement published by Dore Village Society in 2005 and on further consultation undertaken of the whole community through questionnaires in Dore to Door and the Dore Village Society website.
We are still in the early stages of preparing a draft neighbourhood plan and would welcome the offer of help and support from any individual or village group.

The gardens ranged from geometrically formal to mysterious and intriguing, with a large range of plants, trees and shrubs on display as well as refreshments and plants for sale. The weather was well behaved and nearly £2,200 was raised for the various charities chosen by the garden owners.
Our thanks go to the people who spent so much time and effort preparing their gardens for display and whose unstinting efforts were crucial to making this event a success. We look forward to repeating this again next year and if you would like to open your garden please let us know.
