Hockley Heath Parish Council believes that it is appropriate that the complete and well established parish is designated as a Neighbourhood Area. This is exemplified by the previous village plan where volunteers worked together to form a united picture and the Parish Council understands that the residents, businesses and workers in the village and settlement wish the issues and interests to be co-ordinated.
In accordance with section 61G of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the body making the application to designate Hockley Heath as a Neighbourhood Area is Hockley Heath Parish Council, as a parish council established in pursuance of the Local Government Act 1972.
