Brundall Neighbourhood Plan
Saturday 10th May, mid-day to 4pm in the Memorial Hall
Brundall Parish Council invites residents of the village and surrounding area to its first public consultation event on the Brundall Neighbourhood Plan. The event is due to take place at the Memorial Hall on Saturday 10th May from mid-day to 4pm. It will be an informal occasion, designed to allow residents to drop in throughout the day to share their thoughts and views.
The consultation event is the first in a number of similar sessions due to take place during 2014 to allow everyone to have their say on the future of the village. We would be delighted if you could spare some time to come along, learn more about Neighbourhood Planning and start to tell us your views on how you want the village to look in the future and how we need to be guiding any changes.
It is vital that the Neighbourhood Plan, when it is published, should reflect the views and aspirations of the local community, and we encourage you to attend or follow its progress.
Further information about the Neighbourhood Plan and the event will be available from the following sources:

What is Neighbourhood Planning?
Neighbourhood Planning is a new community-led planning initiative that has emerged from the Government’s Localism policy. It gives local people new rights to help shape the development of the communities they live in. Neighbourhood Plans allow communities to set out planning policies on the development and use of land in the ‘neighbourhood area’ which in Brundall’s case is the civil parish. Any policies included within a Neighbourhood Plan need to conform to strategic planning policies and guidance at the local, national and European level; this means that it cannot be used as a mechanism to undermine established planning policies or planning permissions. But local neighbourhood plans can be used to provide additional detail and guidance on issues that cannot be addressed in more strategic documents.
A Working Group has been set up by the Parish Council to prepare the Plan including representatives from a range of community groups and organisations such as the primary school, the business group and Riverside Residents. The Working Group is being supported by Ingham Pinnock Associates who will provide guidance on technical aspects of the process. Funding has been awarded by the Community Development Foundation (£5649)and Broadland District Council (£3530.25)
