The Bovingdon Neighbourhood Plan was launched in January 2019 and is being managed through a Steering Group reporting into the Parish Council. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is made up of Bovingdon residents who want to play an active role in gathering evidence and information needed for producing a Neighbourhood Plan.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community’s needs and where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.
Bovingdon Neighbourhood Plan Area Designation
We have chosen to designate the whole of Bovingdon Parish, as the area to be covered by a Neighbourhood Plan, as we want all residents to feel included and everyone to have a say, in the future of Bovingdon.
We are concentrating on the following areas:
- Business & shopping
- Community Facilities
- Housing and Design
- Transport and Traffic
We are also looking at environmental issues within each of those areas.
