Currently, two working groups are active and are developing policies for the Forum. Currently, meetings are being undertaken virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Housing and Planning Working Group is developing general policies on planning issues and housing in the Knighton Neighbourhood Area. The group has developed a set of policies, and is drafting the relevant section of what will become the Neighbourhood Plan. At the last meeting the group discussed evidence gathered from estate agents about demand for housing in the area.
The Conservation and Heritage Working Group has drafted policies in relation to the preservation of the heritage of the area. A proposal is to create areas of special townscape character. Three sites have been identified including an area in West Knighton. At the next meeting we will be discussing the draft description and evidence for one of these areas.
Details of the meetings of both groups are regularly posted on the Calendar/Next Meetings page of the website.
