Caynham Parish Council

Local Plans

Parish Plan

Parish Plans are intended to help local communities have a greater say in local affairs and provide an action plan for the Parish Council to adopt. A separate Parish Plan was produced for Clee Hill and Dhustone, Knowbury and Caynham a copy of which can be obtained by contacting the Clerk to the Council. A summary of the Action Plans are attached below.

Place Plan

In Shropshire, 18 Place Plans have been produced which identify the infrastructure and investment needs within each community.  They are aimed at ensuring that Shropshire Council and our partners understand the local priorities within each community and that resources can therefore be targeted appropriately.

The Place Plans are based around the  main market towns/key centres of which Caynham Parish is linked to the Market Town of Ludlow.

The Place Plans are important to ensuring the delivery of sustainable places in Shropshire. They recognise that sustainability is based on many different factors and that what is needed to make and a sustainable community in one place may differ in another. Each plan therefore details the priorities, needs and aspirations specific to a relevant location.

Shropshire Council Site Allocations and Management of Development (SAMDev) Plan Adopted Plan 17th December 2015

This Plan identifies Housing and Industrial Land  for Development to the Year 2026 and forms part of Shropshire Council's Core Strategy to the Year 2026.

In respect of Caynham Parish apart from  Clee Hill Village all areas are classed as open countryside and therefore development of housing is restricted to exception sites for Affordable Housing.

Clee Hill is a Community Hub where development by infilling, groups of houses and conversions may be acceptable on suitable sites within the development boundary identified on the Policies Map, with a housing guideline of around 30 additional dwellings over the period to 2026. New development in Clee Hill will take into account the setting of the village within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 Most of the Housing and Industrial development upto the year 2026 will be undertaken in the Market Town of Ludlow.
