Waterbeach Neighbourhood Plan intends to shape the future of our village

“Our Neighbourhood Area will continue to be a great place to live and work by ensuring that the identity and character of the existing communities within the Parish are respected and protected. The plan will ensure that any new development in the Neighbourhood Area will provide sustainable infrastructure. It will ensure the improvement of the overall quality of life of every resident. New development should not be overbearing or overwhelming and should complement the rural vistas and existing Fen Edge landscape"

The Neighbourhood Plan sets out planning policies for the Waterbeach Parish area, including the old Barracks and Chittering. A Neighbourhood Plan is written by the local community the people who know and love the area, rather than the local Planning Authority.
