The Neighbourhood Plan – Why should I care?

At present:

  • Wembdon Parish Council can only make recommendations on planning applications
  • Planning decisions are taken by Sedgemoor’s Officers, or by Sedgemoor’s Planning Committee, none of whose members represent Wembdon, and are based upon compliance with the Policies in Sedgemoor’s Local Plan
  • Up to 15% of the levy on new building is available to Wembdon – on application to Sedgemoor for each project

With a Neighbourhood Plan:

  • Planning decisions will be based upon compliance with our Neighbourhood Plan Policies as well as those in the Local Plan.
  • 25% of the levy can come to Wembdon to use as we decide
