A Neighbourhood Plan for Allington, Bothenhampton & Walditch, Bradpole, Bridport and Symondsbury
A Neighbourhood Plan lets the local community guide the development of their area for years ahead, in our case until the year 2030. As well as housing and employment sites, it can cover many other issues that are important to local people such as the economy, environment, heritage and transport.
When completed, a Neighbourhood Plan forms part of the formal Planning structure and will be taken into account when assessing the suitability of new development proposals. It must support the main objectives of the West Dorset “Local Plan” but is allowed to decide details on local grounds.
This is a genuine community-led initiative and we welcome offers of help. Also, anyone can attend and contribute to Steering Group meetings and dates are publicised on our website.
