Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan


Dear Resident

Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan

I’d like to invite you to The Vaults Exhibition Centre in Lamb Yard to see an important stage in the preparation of Bradford on Avon’s Neighbourhood Plan.  Introduced in 2010 as part of the Localism Act, neighbourhood planning is a new way for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and work.  When approved, the Plan gives the community much greater power over what is built where, and how.

We want to ensure the Plan is imaginative and forward-looking. It will be shaped by national and local planning policies but equally by responses received from the community.  External constraints mean that we’re not looking at major expansion in Bradford on Avon – but we do want to leave the town in good heart for future generations to enjoy.

The town has changed considerably in recent years and there is continuing pressure from developers wanting to build. This plan is being developed to enable the community of Bradford on Avon to have a greater say in the extent and scope of any future development and land use. A lot of progress has been made over the past two years involving many volunteers and members of the community, and there have been several previous consultations.  Now, before completing the town’s Neighbourhood Plan and circulating the final draft, we want to highlight the main proposals to ensure they carry general support from the town, and to enable us to make any necessary amendments.

So please come along to the Neighbourhood Plan consultation in the exhibition space at Made in Bradford in the Vaults in Lamb Yard in the town centre – from Monday 2 March for two weeks. You will also be able to see and download the materials online at

This is your opportunity to make a contribution to the discussion – so please tell us what you think.

Yours sincerely
 
Cllr. Gwen Alison
on behalf of the
Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

Neighbourhood Plan Exhibition

Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan - The Next Stage

Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group invites you to come and see the work in progress on the Neighbourhood Plan and hope that you would be willing to let us have your comments.

The Neighbourhood Plan is for the Parish of Bradford on Avon and is a document which will, when approved, provide a blueprint for the future.  It is important to note that the Plan has to be in accordance with the strategic plans of Central Government and Wiltshire Council but there are many local matters that the Plan can address.

From earlier consultations the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has identified a vision for Bradford on Avon that reflects the wishes of the community.  The Group has also put together a list of the key issues that have a direct bearing on how the town is now and how we wish to see it taken forward into the future.

A further consultation and exhibition is being held at the Town Council Office from 19th May to 13th June where additional information will be available and where members of the Steering Group will be on hand from time to time to answer questions.  The exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm Mondays to Fridays and Monday 19th May 7pm to 9pm, Wednesday 4th June 6pm to 9pm and Saturday 24th May 10am to 4pm. There may be certain dates when the office will be closed to allow meetings to take place but we will try as far as possible to ensure that these occasions will be limited.

If you are representing an organisation and would wish to visit the exhibition with your members on a particular time and date this can be arranged.  Please contact the Town Council on 864240 or email neighbourhoodplan@bradfordonavontowncouncil.gov.uk.


Copies of the exhibition content will also be available in Bradford on Avon library and on the Town Council website for the duration of the exhibition.

With community support, on adoption the Neighbourhood Plan will become a statutory planning document for our town.  It will not solve all of our problems but it will ensure that local opinion has a greater say in decision making on change and development.  We hope therefore that you will take an active role in letting us have your ideas and comments so that we can move ahead to produce a draft plan by the autumn.


Yours sincerely

Cllr Gwen Allison

Bradford on Avon Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group
