What is Forest Edge South?
Forest Edge South covers these Forest of Dean villages and settlements – Parkend, Yorkley, Pillowell, Oldcroft & Viney Hill and Whitecroft.
How does the NDP work?
Information and evidence has to be collected to produce an overview of the area. This then develops into a vision for planning, policies, land allocation and also defining specific facilities for each distinct area which will be reflected in the final plan.
When it has gone through all the required stages, including examination and referendum, the NDP becomes a statutory document. It will be referred to when planning applications are received for the geographic area covered by the Plan.
