The vision is our overall objective, it’s the idea of what we are working towards.
In 2027, Gawsworth will be a tinder and better cared for parish than in 2022. The natural environment will have been enhanced as part of a community wide initiative to be a more environmentally aware parish and the built heritage of the parish will have been better understood and conserved by the community.
Gawsworth will be a healthy and resilient community with access to the affordable housing it needs. Active travel networks will have been improved and people will feel safer using roads and footpaths to travel and there will have been a focus on improving accessibility across the parish.
The Neighbourhood Plan will continue to be effective in ensuring appropriate development and there will be a welcoming rural feel across the entire parish. Any new residents from the LPS15 development will feel part of Gawsworth community.
The parish will have a strong civil society with an actively engaged community. There will be evidence strong partnership working across the various organisations operating in the parish.
We’ve drafted six strategic priorities which will help us meet the vision. Under each priority we then have a number of more specific objectives. Once these have been agreed we’ll develop specific actions under each to ensure we can deliver.
GPC1 – The Parish Council will work to enhance the natural environment, built heritage and open spaces within the parish.
GPC2 – The Parish Council will work to deliver a strong and resilient civil society
GPC3 – The Parish Council will play an active role in the planning system and protect the rural identity OF Gawsworth
GPC4 – The Parish Council will enhance accessibility and active travel across and outside the parish
GPC5 – The Parish Council will improve the standards of maintenance across the parish
GPC6 – The Parish Council will maximise the use of IT and promote skill sharing the community
We want to ensure that our new five year plan serves the needs of the community, so please let us know what you think. Have we missed anything? What is most important to you? How do you think we could meet these goals?
