This page provides background information and links relating to the scope of the survey and some of the items discussed in parish meetings to date.

Some information on our understanding of local planning policy, neighbourhood plans and community rights to build are included for background, but the Flamstead Future project is only concerned with surveying the views of parishioners and reflecting these to the community and to the Parish Council. Nothing on this website should be taken as planning advice, recommendation or anything more than a basic¬†attempt to give an introduction to a complex area in which new tools such as neighbourhood plans are finding their feet. It is ultimately the Parish Council’s responsibility to decide how best to proceed.
