Extracts from the report:
38. I must congratulate the Steering Group on the quality of this neighbourhood plan. It is a comprehensive, well written and presented plan that builds upon a clear vision for Cam and has a clear set of objectives which sets the context for the policies. It proposes a number of specific planning policies, which are backed up by proportionate evidence. The maps are clear and are a useful basis for decision making.
39. These neighbourhood plan policies add a local dimension which will sit comfortably alongside the Stroud Local Plan. They are distinctive policies which reflects the unique characteristics of the parish, and especially its landscape setting. The authors of the plan accept that the parish is going to change through the strategic allocations in the north-east corner of the village and have taken a positive approach which seeks to shape the new development so that it meets the needs and aspirations of the local community.
