Saturday 6th December 2014 marked the publication of Haddenham's draft Neighbourhood Plan. This document is a major landmark in an ongoing public consultation process that started approximately 16 months ago, seeking to draw together and publish the collective views of Haddenham residents so that we can all help shape the nature, scale and appearance of the village over the next 15-20 years.
It would be no exaggeration to say that this is the most important activity for Haddenham in the last three decades, and has the potential to affect all those who choose to live in this village and regard themselves as part of the Haddenham community.
To understand why the Neighbourhood Plan is so important, especially at the time, please see here.
If you missed the public consultation event on Saturday, copies of the published document are available from the Parish Office; or you can download the draft document here — see PDF below the images.
If you've not yet engaged in this public consultation process, please do so! The comments of local residents are still very welcome.
