With the support of Ringwood Town Council, four task teams have been created, each focusing on a key aspect of the plan and how it can work for the local community. These are:
Setting out a vision for the town centre as to how it should be developed and what uses would be acceptable. This involves unlocking key sites such as the Old Town Hall and Social Club and “de-risking” their development.
Design and Heritage
Influencing the design of new homes and public open spaces to ensure quality development is a key aim of the plan. We hope to shape the details of at least one of the allocated strategic sites. This might also include design coding to manage the quality of infill and other schemes.
Delivering impactful climate change actions, raising the standard of design of development and green infrastructure to improve environmental outcomes.
Looking to identify sites of 10+ dwellings and opportunities for community-led and self-build housing.
We have also engaged Oneill Homer in the production of Neighbourhood Plan. Oneill Homer is the market leader in providing independent professional planning support in preparing Neighbourhood Plans. Since 2012, they have helped 127 projects across 47 different local planning authority areas from Dorset to Norfolk and from Worcestershire to Sussex.
