For the first time the people of Bewdley will have a chance to shape the future of the town.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Neighbourhood Plan — if voted for by the people of Bewdley — will set out the vision for the town in terms of future land use and form part of the Wyre Forest District Local Plan. The plan will belong to the town and will be a legal document used to inform future planning and development issues.
UPDATE – December 2017
The Town Council have decided that the Neighbourhood Plan will go ahead without the Green Belt sites listed so that the Plan is not delayed until 2020, as may be the case if we wait for WFDC’s Local Plan Review. Please look out for the Draft Plan which will be out for consultation soon!
UPDATE – March 2018
The Draft Neighbourhood Plan is due to enter its next formal consultation process known as Regulation 14 in the next few weeks. The Plan Steering Group have listened to all your feedback over the past 18 months and have now produced a robust and fit for purpose draft Plan that we are now asking you to endorse. This is your last chance to provide feedback before the Plan is formally submitted to Wyre Forest DC for checking and then on to final examination. Watch this space over the coming weeks!
