The Parish Assembly on the 23rd May brought about significant changes with regard to the Abbots
Bromley Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP). See this update for details: July 2018 Update on Neighbourhood Develoment Plan
The Neighbourhood Plan Group has been working hard to fill the vacancies in the team following the decision
taken by Tom Wheeldon and Neal Haywood in late 2017 to step down. It is vital that we can operate with the full group
quota set by the Parish Council of ten members in order that we can spread the work load and time
We are delighted to confirm that local residents Keith Baker and Rob Humphries have agreed to join
the group. We are sure they will bring key skills and local knowledge to the team.

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.
