Neighbourhood Plan

 What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a new way in which the local community can influence planning in the area in which they live and work.

A Neighbourhood Plan will build on our Village Design Statement and take forward recommendations made in the VDS. Unlike the VDS, the Neighbourhood Plan carries statutory weight and considerably strengthens our ability to guide development in Bourton in a way that reflects the priorities and needs expressed by the majority of those who live in the parish. The government wants local people to take a proactive role in shaping the future of the areas in which they live, finding creative and imaginative ways to overcome the pressures that development can create for conservation, local services and amenities. The plan will be subject to an ongoing consultation process with residents, businesses and interested organisations. The Plan is being developed by the village for the village and must be approved in a referendum of those who live in the village. Once in place, the plan will comprise the framework for change in Bourton for the next fifteen years or so.

Neighbourhood Plan 

Date 20 September 2017 – BOURTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN – Time to Vote

BOURTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN 

TIME TO VOTE FOR THE FUTURE OF YOUR VILLAGE 

Referendum Thurs 11th January 2018

As you will be aware, there have been many public meetings, questionnaires, consultations and discussions, over the last five years, which have been carried out to establish the views of residents on the future of the village.  The results of this process have been collated by the Neighbourhood Planning Group, on behalf of the Parish Council, and incorporated in a series of planning policies which are set out in the Neighbourhood Plan. 

This Plan has now been approved by an Independent Examiner and will become part of planning policy for the village, if approved by a majority of residents in a referendum.  The community’s response to the various consultations, particularly the questionnaires, has been outstanding and we hope that you will take this opportunity to have a positive influence on the future of the village by voting in the referendum on Thurs. 11th January 2018
