Our community plan

The role of Ore Village as a district centre is to be maintained and enhanced, which we welcome. We are currently preparing a Speckled Wood Community Plan that sets out a sustainable enhancement and development strategy for Speckled Wood.

Key aspects of our Community Plan are:

  • A moratorium on further re-development in Speckled Wood
  • A focus on the recreational and amenity needs of the local community
  • Land transfer that shifts land ownership to Ore Community Land Trust
  • An holistic approach to green space planning in Ore
  • A new audit based on the green space potential of Speckled Wood
  • Wide consultation as to the Wood’s best enhancement options.
  • A funding strategy that can support a programme of a phased enhancement.
  • Our Speckled Wood Community Plan embedded in the new Borough Local Development (Planning) Framework.
