Background Work

The Neighbourhood Plan has to be prepared in accordance with rules set by Central Government. The plan will be tested on how well it addresses the key challenges facing a future Thornton area. A range of documents are provided that help understanding of those involved in preparing the plan and other stakeholders who have a role to play in making sure change happens in a way that supports local community living. Viewable documents include:

  • Background Report – facts and figures about Thornton
  • Thornton Prospectus – early version of planning challenges facing Thornton
  • Thornton Ideas for change – sketches about the nature of change and what the area could be like in years to come
  • Church of the Holy Apostle re-use – plans for the former church including new theatre space and events centre
