Ross-on-Wye Neighbourhood Plan

  • Neighbourhood Planning

Client: Ross-on-Wye Neighbourhood Plan Group

Ross-on-Wye is a market town set in the beautiful Wye Valley, and is the centre for a population estimated to be around 26,000 people. Sustaining and revitalising the town centre was a key driver behind the decision to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan.

The Place team were appointed by the Steering Group to develop an approach to plan making that was fully inclusive and resulted in a practical document that the town would be able to use to deliver local aspirations and address issues.

The plan is progressing to draft document stage, with Place Studio providing support to the Steering Group and to the Working Groups. We have run workshops, helped to set up and run consultation events, and are coordinating and enabling the local members of the various working groups to undertake some very important (and very good!) evidence collection work for the plan. We have got a wide range of people involved in the process so far, from the local scout group to schools and businesses.
