Why a Neighbourhood Plan for Colsterworth and District?
COLSTERWORTH AND DISTRICT NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN is an important planning document which will shape the future of our community over the next ten years. It is relevant to all parishioners and those who value our unique heritage and sense of community.
South Kesteven District Council is required by the government to meet the assessed housing need and build more new homes. Colsterworth and District Parish will have to take its share of this requirement.
By preparing a Neighbourhood Plan the Parish Council is taking the opportunity to influence the type, scale and design of any development which can take place within the Parish.
It affords an opportunity to protect and enhance natural features that are most valued: the rural aspect of the Parish with its wide open views and important green spaces; the quiet meandering River Witham and the wildlife it supports; the contrast of the busy, yet convenient A1 corridor; together with our unique historical heritage - as it was here the world changed forever when Isaac Newton worked on his ground breaking scientific discoveries at his family home of Woolsthorpe Manor in the years 1665-1666.
