Askerswell Forum

Askerswell Forum was formed to develop the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) that is now in place until the end of 2028. It was formed as we
lack a Parish Council that has a statutory right to develop such a plan. Membership of the Forum is open to all residents and those
working in the Parish. The Forum has a Constitution and a Steering Group that progresses matters between its meetings which are
notified in advance to the whole community. All decisions are taken by the Forum as agreed by a majority vote.

The Neighbourhood Plan now has the same legal status as the Local Plan and so is part of the statutory development plan. Applications
for planning permission must be determined in accordance with the development plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
