Whilst recognising the need to embrace the Local Plan we hope to ensure that the original character of Effingham is maintained. We want local people to have the final say in where and how new homes are built in Effingham.
We will be talking with residents to understand the kinds of homes people want to see built in the area and which sites residents feel are most suitable to develop. A crucial part of this approach will be to develop a design statement for the area which will set out the design elements that we all feel are crucial to the protecting the character of the village and surrounding area whilst still meeting the responsibilities within the Local Borough Plan.
The first draft of ideas from 14th March Meeting can be found below.
