Do you recognise where these pictures are taken and what the map shows? They are all of Preston, our parish, which has, due to the Localism Act passed by Parliament in 2012, the legal right and opportunity to prepare its own Neighbourhood Plan. The sketch map above illustrates that it is much larger than just the village. It is also a more unusual shape than many of us may have realised. Preston is not just a place to live, but also a place in which people work and enjoy life.
As part of the evidence base for our Neighbourhood Plan we will have to describe the character of our parish as it is now. This may be produced as a separate character assessment document.
We’d like your help identifying and describing the parish and what is important to each of us. This section of the website will share what we have so far – and in time the submitted character assessment.
As part of our Neighbourhood Plan Survey, our youngest residents are telling us what they like about Preston in words and pictures. Follow this link to the portfolio of their work so far: Preston Parish by our Youngest Residents
