Neighbourhood Plan – JUSt group
Selston Parish Council has spearheaded the development of a Neighbourhood plan for the parish, and a steering group has been established to develop the plan, with the help of professional planners.
This group, which is made up of local residents is now named jus-t, (reflecting the villages of Jacksdale & Westwood, Underwood & Bagthorpe and Selston) and is responsible for the development of the plan.
The plan will take into account the views of local people with regard to a wide range of subjects, ie housing, retail, business, education, leisure, medical services etc.
This is a big undertaking, as we are the largest parish in the country. However, it is also a great opportunity for local people to make decisions about issues which are important to us, rather than having those decisions imposed on us.
