Scalford NDP

Policy CFA1 

The Retention of Community Facilities and Amenities 


The Plan identifies the following community facilities in the neighbourhood area:

• Scalford School
• St Egelwin’s Church, Scalford
• St Mary’s Church, Chadwell
• Scalford Village Hall
• The King’s Arms PH, Scalford
• Scalford recreation ground
• Scalford allotments


Development proposals that would lead to the loss of any of the identified community facilities will not be unless it can be demonstrated that:

a) There is no longer any need or demand for the existing community facility;

b) The existing community facility is, demonstrably, no longer economically viable or able to be supported by the community – such viability and support includes fundraising and volunteering by parishioners and others; or

c) The proposal makes alternative provision for the relocation of the existing community facility to an equally or more appropriate and accessible location within the Parish which complies with the other policies of the Neighbourhood Plan.
