Desford Neighbourhood Plan

The production of the Desford Parish Neighbourhood Plan is being led by Desford Parish Council with the support of a small Working Party of local volunteers.
The success of the plan will rely on ongoing input and support from local residents, businesses, land owners, and other organisations active within the parish.
Opportunities will be provided for ALL members of the community to engage in and inform the production of the plan.

If YOU would like to get involved in the process, have your say on future development, and help the Parish Council to plan the future of the area then please engage in the consultation activities over the next few months or email us:
