PLANS that will shape the future of a number of villages across the Isle of Wight were approved on Friday.
The Chale village design statement, parish plans for Nettlestone and Seaview and Yarmouth and Thorley’s community plans have all been adopted and will be considered in future planning decisions in the villages.
The plans will be used alongside the Isle of Wight’s core planning strategy and will look at how future development proposals such as housing schemes will impact on local communities.
The decision, taken under delegated powers by Isle of Wight Council cabinet member for the economy Cllr George Brown, will be formerly implemented by the authority this Friday, but could be called-in by potential objectors this week.

Tina Howell, the 8,000 odd new homes they state in the Core Strategy is not true, they have not included the houses..etc that have already been built since 2008, the actual figures will probably be more like 11,000, you are being lied to yet again, and they do not mention the 27 Gypsy pitches

Gary I can vouch for that. I have had 2 roads re-aligned to overcome flooding. With others, I have had a planning application refused for a small developement and I have had a new gas main laid in the road when I was told only a few days earlier that there was no money in the budget.You have to be sure of what you are talking about AND, put it in writing. In the case of the gas main, there was a nasty sting in the tail of the letter and a copy forwarded to a very interested organisation. The Gas Board moved quick.Don't take ..NO ......

The tools exist to allow people to take more control of their existing communities the main problem is that most people can't be bothered or think they'll leave it to someone else. What then happens is that people who are less well equipped to make important decision get to do so because they're the only ones who stepped up to the plate, then everyone moans! People need to realise that they can be heard but only if they get involved.

The problem Mr.Ball is that, just like being part of this marxist EU, the people and residents are not being ASKED if they wish these things, they are being forced on them whether they like it or not, that is not Democracy, that is Dictatorship, in any case, We only need more houses to cater for the overflow of immigrants that this and other consecutive lying governments have allowed illegally into our country, AGAIN! without asking the BRITISH people

I appreciate that most people would not want any great development in their area but what people seem to sometimes ignore is that population is growing and people need somewhere to live. Just saying no is unrealistic and dare I say it short sighted. Your local shop, newsagent or pub rely on local residents to keep them going and in an ever declinig market a few more people living in the area might make the difference. No development really isn't an option I'm afraid as much as that might seem harsh. The best thing local communites can do is request that their Parish Councils prepare a Neighbourhood Plan which carry legal weight (unlike Parish Plans which are just wish lists) and this at least gives the people who live in the area a say in what the communities needs are and not only that what type, style and level of accommodation should, if needed, be built.

Mr.Heelan, sounds very familiar, i am afraid your villages have been designated as of need of ENRICHMENT, part of the forced council "Core Strategy" 10,400 new homes and 27 Gypsy pitches, done deal! keep fighting it though,and if your parish council wont help, vote them out when you get a chance

If other village plan surveys are like the one circulated in our village, they are suspect. Our village plan survey asked us to choose between areas for development- but did not give the option of "No further development". In other words, the survey assumed further development when many- maybe most- people in the village do not want any more development.This anomaly was pointed out to the local parish council who promptly ignored it.
