Neighbourhood Plan - Submission Stage Consultation

The Submission Stage Consultation Stage is now underway! It runs from Monday 5th August to Tuesday 17th September. This is the second formal consultation that is required on the North Bradley Neighbourhood Plan – the ‘Submission Stage Consultation’ under Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations. The previous ‘Pre-Submission Consultation’, undertaken in January through to March 2019, was the first formal stage in gathering feedback from the community on the draft plan.

The Submission Stage Consultation reflects community-wide comments, observations, proposals and concerns about the village’s future, bringing them together into a 'living framework' that articulates the community’s overwhelming desire to make North Bradley an even better place to live, both now and in the future.   

The plan has been produced by a Neighbourhood Planning Steering Team including Parish Council members, community volunteers with support from a professional consultant and Wiltshire Council.

Neighbourhood Plan Update

North Bradley Parish has reached a significant milestone in its journey to achieve a Neighbourhood Plan.  The final draft documents have been sent to Wiltshire Council and have been validated. Wiltshire Council will now carry out preparations to publicise the plan for a 6-week consultation period before the Plan goes in front of a planning Inspector. 

Lee Lee, the Parish Council Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Steering Group, said “I am absolutely delighted to reach this stage.  It has been a long and difficult process but we have had the advice of a knowledgeable consultant and have an enthusiastic Steering Group of dedicated volunteers who are seeing it through.  Our residents have been very supportive throughout the various consultations. One particularly important policy has been to achieve a Landscape Gap between North Bradley village and the Wiltshire Council proposed development next to the White Horse Business Park.  It looks as though we have achieved this.”

Now the Neighbourhood Plan has got this far, it has formal standing and has to be taken into account by Wiltshire Planners when considering development applications within the parish.
