Bovingdon Neighbourhood Plan

Consultation on a proposed Bovingdon neighbourhood area

Bovingdon Parish Council has applied to designate its parish area as a neighbourhood area. This is the first step towards creating a neighbourhood plan for the area.

We are now seeking your opinions on the proposed designation of the Bovingdon Parish Area as a neighbourhood area.

Details and supporting documents

The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations (2012, as amended) give parish or town councils, and neighbourhood forums, the ability to apply for a neighbourhood area to be designated.

This is the first step in the process of developing a neighbourhood plan for an area. Once a council adopts a neighbourhood plan, it sits alongside the development plan for the area and is used to influence decisions on planning applications in the neighbourhood area.

These documents support Bovingdon Parish Council's application for designation as a neighbourhood area:

Please note: this is not a consultation on the neighbourhood plan itself, but merely the identification of the area for which the parish council wishes to prepare a neighbourhood plan.
