Current Projects

In addition to its statutory duties and the day-to-day running of the Parish, the Council is often involved with specific projects as part of its Strategic Objectives.

Go Ahead for Development of a Neighbourhood Plan


At an Extraordinary Meeting of the Council on 23 March 2017, it was resolved to develop a Parish Neighbourhood Plan. This decision was taken in light of the overwhelming support for such a Plan from those who had responded to the Council’s six-week Consultation on the subject. At a subsequent Public Meeting on 15 May 2017, a Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (NPSG) was formed, including the appointment of members and the election of David Holt as Chairman. Gill Whatley, Council’s Administrative Assistant, also agreed to act as Administration Co-ordinator for the Group. The Group can be contacted on projects@rowlandscastlepc.org.uk or via the Parish Office – see Contact for more details.

A Neighbourhood Plan is a local development plan for a specific place (in our case, the Parish). It is drawn up by the local community working with the planning authority (in our case, East Hants District Council and South Downs National Park Authority) and is approved by an independent inspector before going to a community referendum.
