Lydiate Neighbourhood Plan – Have your Say!

Lydiate Parish Council is in the final stages of developing a Neighbourhood Plan.  The Plan will set polices for future development in Lydiate to ensure we protect and enhance green spaces, the character of Lydiate and ensure that any development that does take place is in keeping with Lydiate’s character and of good design quality.

We began the process in May 2016 when we asked you about Lydiate, the place you choose to live, work retire or go to school.  We have captured your feedback in our draft plan.

We need your help once again!   Please let us know if we have captured all your comments and that you feel the plan is what you asked for.
