Mancetter Neighbourhood Plan

The Mancetter Neighbourhood Plan (2015-29) will allow the Parish Council to have more influence on the planning decisions made by the Borough Council in the future. It will help to manage development and change so that the environmental, economic and social needs of local people can be taken into account to keep Mancetter Parish special. The Plan covers all of the Parish, including Mancetter Village and Ridge Lane.

The Draft Mancetter Neighbourhood Development Plan consultation period (in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) has now ended.

We are leaving the plan documents on this website for a while as a reference source.

New Parish Web Site

Welcome to the new Mancetter Parish web site. The new site is responsive design and will render well on desktops/laptops, tablets and smart phones. The new site has the all main information about the Parish and over the coming weeks we will be adding more detail, particularly we need to review and update the information we had on the old site relating to local organisations, clubs and businesses for both Mancetter and Ridge Lane and some other pages from the old site. If you wish to use any photographs from this site please ask so that the originator can be credited. If anyone has old photographs of Mancetter and Ridge Lane we would like to see them and possibly put them on this web site.

Mancetter Parish Council's Community Grant Fund

Applications must satisfy a number of conditions to be considered for a grant. Bids should be made for projects which will be of benefit to the whole community or a specific group whose principal objectives are not those of a single individual. Applications will not be accepted where the benefit is to a single individual.

The project should be of benefit to a significant number of persons living within the Parish. Applications will be considered only from "not for profit" organisations. Applications should be for one-off projects. Applications for sums up to 50% of total project cost, to a maximum of £200 will be considered. Applications are considered twice a year in July and November. Applications should be submitted by the first day of the month. Full Guidance Notes and Application Form.
