Queen Camel is a parish steeped in history with valuable heritage and a community that should be supported and encouraged to develop. Investment and change in the years ahead will be worthwhile only if both make a real difference to the lives of local people and safeguard the future of the community.
Neighbourhood Plans were introduced following the Government’s Localism Act of 2011 and aim to give local people more influence about how their area is developed.
The Queen Camel Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) started when Queen Camel was awarded Frontrunner status following the enactment of the Localism Act 2011, with the specific objectives to trial aspects of planning as changed by the Act. The original draft Plan was publicised on the website but did not proceed to referendum. This edition is an update of the original draft Plan.
