In October 2014 the Dore Village Society was designated a Neighbourhood Forum. The following links are to a collection of documents recording the origin and activities of the Dore Neighbourhood Forum and its appointed Steering Group and the development of the Dore Neighbourhood Plan.

The current position (as of June 2019) is that the Forum met on 19 June 2019 and unanimously approved the latest draft of the Plan which is destined to be submitted to our Local Planning Authorities in July.

That latest version of the Dore Neighbourhood Plan is available for viewing and downloading: a copy can be obtained here.
