Thank you to all of the volunteers who braved the strong winds to make a great start to our cleanup campaign this year. It was especially good to see so many children join in and taking pride in our village.

The Rolleston on Dove Neighbourhood plan has now been submitted to ESBC to start the Regulation 16 process. This process will see the plan not only reviewed by ESBC but also submitted to an independent assessor for formal review. This submission follows months of work by the Neighbourhood plan committee, building on the work of the previous committee plus the valuable feedback from the Parish, statutory bodies and our external consultants. A huge thank you to all those who contributed.
Depending on the process now being undertaken, we anticipate that the plan will go to the village by referendum some time around June. A copy of the submission can be found below:
