Built Environment

So what is the Built Environment?  Simply put it’s the structures that are made by humans; our shops, houses, roads and industrial units = but excluding our mine ruins and relics of the industrial past that have become part of the landscape and count as `historic environment’.The Neighbourhood Plan gives the community the chance to influence the look and feel of any new development; where a vernacular design should be used or where an alternative style might be acceptable.

Natural and Historic Environment

The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally, meaning in this case not artificial. It encompasses the interaction of all living species, climate, weather, and natural resources that affect human survival and economic activity.
The historic environment encompasses all aspects of the environment resulting from the interaction between people and places through time, including all surviving physical remains of past human activity, whether visible, buried or submerged, and landscaped and planted or managed flora.  Subjects which are included in or impact on the natural and historic environment include: agriculture, archaeology, heritage, history, ancient monuments, culture, wildlife, nature, habitats, geology, mining, biodiversity, landscape, ecology, tourism, climate change, planning, sustainable development, coast, countryside, moors, open spaces, green spaces, health & wellbeing, dark skies, pollution.

For each strand we have had a sub-group which scoped the topics, collected evidence, and drafted questions for our household survey.  The two groups merged in autumn 2018. Members joined the Steering Group in autumn 2019 so that we can work together on drafting the Plan.

Community Engagement

Our Community Engagement group works on listening to residents and finding out what their priorities are.   Its two major activities so far have been `Have Your Say’, our listening exercise in June 2018, and our household survey in June 2019.
