Introducing the Eaton Bray Neighbourhood Plan

The Government is encouraging town and parish councils to set out Neighbourhood Development Plans that demonstrate how communities would like to improve the villages and their surroundings in the future. It will also help provide some protection to Eaton Bray when it comes to unwanted over-development and support the need for infrastructure improvements.

The current plan is the outcome of three years of research and consultation. Thank you to the steering group, our professional advisor and to all those who have taken part in previous consultations.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan? Put simply, it is a document that describes the desired plans for a village over a 20 year period and contains the areas that village residents feel are important and specifies what the majority wants. It covers topics such as housing and development, amenities, environmental protection, transport and highways, to name but a few.

Once a majority support the plan in a referendum vote, it must be adopted by the local authority as part of the policies and guidance that they use in determining planning applications.

Pre‑Submission Neighbourhood Plan

Below you will find the principal plan document along with a set of supporting documents which form the appendices to the principal plan.

Taken together these form the Pre‑Submission Neighbourhood Plan upon which we are seeking your views and comments. Please read these documents and then let us have any comments you feel are relevant.

All comments, views and opinions will be considered before submitting the Plan to the local authority (Central Bedfordshire Council), who will check it is compliant with legislation and then submit it to a suitably qualified planning inspector.

Once the plan has passed these stages, it will be bought back to you, the residents of Eaton Bray, seeking majority approval in a referendum.

The public consultation ran from Friday 11 May 2018 until Friday 22 June 2018.
