During September we will activate a link to an on line survey regarding the proposed Sports and Leisure Centre. We need to provide evidence to obtain the funding to demonstrate that, if we are able to build a facility, it will be used by local residents and others. The survey will be carried out by an independent survey company and will be anonymous. We do however, need as much input as possible from residents regarding the sort of facilities that are needed so the survey will be comprehensive and detailed. We look forward to your input.
We have completed the draft pre-submission version of the Dinnington St John’s Neighbourhood Plan, and we now invite YOUR comments. This Plan covers the whole of the Parish of Dinnington St John’s. As part of this process, the Town Council is required under Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, to bring the draft Plan to the attention of people who live, work or carry on business in the Plan area. The period within which comments can be made on the Plan is 15th December 2018 to 18 February 2019.
The Neighbourhood Plan is a really important document, as it outlines a future vision for the Parish and includes planning policies which will be used to determine planning proposals for Dinnington. Please take the time to read the draft Plan and give us your views, as these will add strength to the proposals. This is YOUR Plan and we want to ensure that we have reflected local priorities and aspirations, prior to its submission to Rotherham Borough Council.
The Plan and supporting documents may be viewed by following the link below. The Town Centre masterplan can be viewed here. Printed copies of the Plan are available to view at the Town Council’s Offices by arrangement at 01909 564169. If you wish to comment on the Plan, you can either do this by:
