Many villages in the UK are under threat from massive development and over expansion. The prospect of new homes being constructed with no proper infrastructure draws closer, with locals able to do nothing about it.
WHAT IS ICKFORD DOING ABOUT IT?
We are producing our Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). The ‘Vision for Ickford’ NDP is a document being produced by a local committee linked to the Ickford Parish Council setting out the future of our community for 15-20 years, which has legal weight in planning decisions and village growth. ‘What is a Neighbourhood Plan’.
POORLY PLANNED OVERDEVELOPMENT IN BAMPTON
View this link concerning the village of Bampton in the Cotswolds.
It is an example of what could happen to Ickford if no NDP is developed. This film aims to illustrate dramatically how Bampton is beginning to change and not for the better – it could already be too late for them.
