Our Draft Vision

Our draft vision describes what the Warkworth Neighbourhood Plan intends to achieve over the plan period to 2036.

“In 2036 the Parish of Warkworth will be an attractive place to live and grow with a community that is sustainable, cohesive, and thriving. We will have retained and improved our community facilities; protected and enhanced our valued green spaces and special landscapes; and conserved our unique historic environment. Warkworth will be a carbon neutral parish.

The diverse needs and wellbeing of the existing and future residents will be provided for and the community will be sustainable in relation to the facilities and infrastructure available to residents. Residents will have good access to facilities and be well connected by safe roads, cycle ways and footpaths.

All people who live in the parish will have the opportunity to participate in shaping their surroundings and feel proud of where they live.”

New development will minimise environmental harm by employing high quality design and sustainable building technology. Developments will be designed to be resilient to the effects of climate change.

All people who live in the parish will have the opportunity to participate in shaping their surroundings and feel proud of where they live.”

Aim 3

Environment

The natural environment, including the Northumberland Coast AONB, will be conserved and enhanced, including biodiversity and green infrastructure networks and local green spaces which are valued by the community. New development will make a positive contribution to the historic and built environment.

Aim 4

Community

Key community facilities and infrastructure will be protected and developed to ensure that the community is inclusive and sustainable.

Aim 5

Economy

Appropriate and sustainable levels of commerce in a variety of sectors across the Parish will be encouraged, and key services and facilities that contribute to a thriving community will be protected. Tourism will be managed so that it enhances the charm of the village and does not detract from the needs of permanent residents. 

Aim 6

Transport and Access

Access to facilities and services will be promoted for all residents, and visitors, by the creation of safe and high- quality roads, parking areas, pavements and green routes including footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways. The use of public transport will be encouraged.
