Why Bother With The Neighbourhood Plan?


Public Consultation is key


For Ropley’s Neighbourhood Plan to be valid, formal approval to be obtained and the Plan to gain statutory status, we must show that the local community has been actively engaged throughout the process and their opinions and representation reflected in the plan. As a member of the community you can participate directly in that.


To make coordination and communication easier, Ropley and the surrounding area has been split into 6 geographical areas. Each area has a person to lead the distribution and gathering of information and ideas interfacing between the residents and the Steering Committee that’s managing this project.
