Neighbourhood Plan


Market Drayton Town Council is in the process of creating a “Neighbourhood Plan”. This is very important and gives everyone the chance to have a say on the future of our town.

A Neighbourhood Plan allows everyone to have their say on the future development & services of the town and the facilities therein, to influence the type and quality of that development and to ensure that the change it brings meets local objectives, set and agreed by them.  Existing planning arrangements under the widely publicised SAMDEV (Site Allocations and Management of Development) scheme will continue, but the Neighbourhood Plan may address any issues not already covered.

This page will provide posts on news and events relating to the Neighbourhood Plan.
