Well, it’s been a busy time! The Neighbourhood Plan Working Group
worked hard during April and May to pull the results of the consultation together and get the displays etc ready in time
for the Parish Assembly on 18th May. We are lucky to have such an engaged and dedicated team, willing to give their time
up to help progress the plan.
The response we had back to the consultation was nothing short of incredible! So
many people took the time to respond to the questionnaire as well as take time out to come and view the displays at the
So what happens next? Well the Working Group are in the process of responding directly to the two key
issues you identified in the consultation, local housing need and traffic/parking. Overwhelmingly these were the main
issues of concern or interest to people right across the Parish. We will be commissioning research into these issues in
the coming months before we consult further later in the summer. The next edition of the Bromley Bulletin will be
landing on doormats before long and we will provide an update on progress.
We also have meetings with a range
of village organisations in the pipeline including Abbots Bromley School in a bid to get as many people involved as
possible in having their say in the direction of the plan.
As well as this we will be drafting some new
displays to put up on the Green by the Buttercross as well as hopefully in the Village Hall and Church House so keep an
eye out for these.
We’ve now had almost 90 “likes” on the NDP Facebook Page which is fantastic, we are doing
our best to be “visible” by using as many means as we can to communicate with you so please keep spreading the word
and keep checking for updates.
