AB Neighbourhood Development Plan Survey – September 2019

The NDPG are conducting a Parish wide survey to allow parishioners the opportunity to comment on the ‘first outline’ of the proposed Policies and Aims of the Abbots Bromley Parish Neighbourhood Plan.

Here are the leaflet pages describing the proposed Policy headings and Aims, together with currently identified potential areas for designation as Local Green spaces:
* PDF icon AB Themes and Policies - September 2019 (678.1 Kb)
* PDF icon AB Local Green Spaces - September 2019 (523.0 Kb)

In order that community opinion shapes the outcome of the Draft Plan, the additional Feedback sheet invites residents to make their observations known to the NDPG. The Feedback sheet may be printed and returned as indicated on the leaflet, or through completion of the online survey (please see link below).
* PDF icon NP Survey Form - September 2019 (29.1 Kb)

Thank you for your interest and participation.

AB Neighbourhood Development Plan Update – August 2019

Over recent weeks the NDPG have been productively collating the evidence and commentary gathered from the various recent Public Sessions (and from the 2016-2018 legacy data).

All information has been passed to Urban Vision (Consultants commissioned to produce the policies for the Abbots Bromley Parish NDP).

Following a productive NDPG led meeting at the Urban Vision office in Liverpool on Tuesday 13th August 2019, we wish to report that they are now undertaking to produce a ‘first outline’ of the Policies that will constitute the basis of the NDP.

In the coming weeks the NDPG will produce an information leaflet outlining all the Policy areas with a brief description of the aims of each policy. Recognising community opinion and the importance placed on heritage and conservation, the leaflet will also identify proposed Local Green Spaces to be incorporated into the NDP.

A ‘feedback’ sheet will accompany the leaflet enabling all residents to provide a general response/comment indicating support or otherwise in respect of the Policy headings, their aims and the proposed Local Green Spaces.

It is important that residents also provide brief detailed reasons for their response (whether for or against), as this information will be used by the Consultant to amend and finalise the Policies for initial presentation to the Parish Council and ESBC in September 2019.

The NDPG also intend to arrange at least one ‘drop in session’ to display the Policy headings, aims and proposed Local Green Spaces to enable residents to discuss the proposals and offer feedback. This session is likely to be held towards the end of August/early September. The date will be widely publicised.

The NDP is a parish-wide Community Plan produced by the Parish for the benefit of the Parish. Therefore, your continued input is essential.
