Newport Town Council is currently consulting on its Neighbourhood development plan

 The proposed plan is now open for consultation and seeks to address a number of planning matters including:

  • Providing protection for a number of green spaces in Newport.

  • Protecting and supporting new community facilities.

  • Protection and encouraging enhancement of Newport’s Conservation area.

  • Retaining land set aside for employment.

  • Imposing standards on Houses of Multiple Occupation.

  • Supporting the restoration of the Canal.

  • Promoting the delivery of sufficient car parking.

Hard copies of the document are available to read in the library or the Guildhall.  Alternatively you can view the plan on line.

The Town Council is hopeful that the document will have a positive impact on future development.  The policies have been drawn out following a variety of consultation events and through valid contributions by voluntary groups including; the Civic Society, The Chamber of Commerce, The local Canal Trust, Newport 21 and others. 

Closing date for comment Friday 16th June
