  • The Neighbourhood Plan is based on the results of the 2017 Survey
    It contains policies and their supporting evidence, including the survey results. Not everything that was said in the survey translates into "Planning Considerations". This plan contains policies that, wherever possible, enforce or support the wishes of Preston parishioners.
  • It may be easier to read through the plan first and make a note of any
    paragraphs, text, objectives and policies you would like to return to.
  • The first 5 sections contain background information about Preston and how we
    Sections 6 to 11 (pages 21 to 43) define the policies - the essence of the plan.
    got to this stage in developing the Neighbourhood Plan.
    If, for any reason, you would rather not look at the whole document, you could
    just read and comment on the policies. You can submit more comments later.

Preston Parish for the Under 10’s

As part of the survey, we also asked the under 10’s to draw and/or write what they like about living in Preston – their work seems to sum up that it is the rural setting and things you can enjoy in it, that we all say we like. Follow this link to the Portfolio Page to see larger copies.
