Bovingdon Parish Council has submitted its proposed Neighbourhood Plan to us and now we want your feedback. The plan will influence the way the Bovingdon area grows and develops into the future.
The consultation is now open and the deadline for making comments is midnight on Sunday 12 November 2023. The plan, its supporting documents and details on how to respond can be found on our Bovingdon Neighbourhood Plan page.
Once the consultation is complete, an independent examiner will be appointed to review the plan. All comments received will be passed to the examiner for consideration.
If the plan is approved it will be the subject of a public referendum voted on by residents in the parish area of Bovingdon.
Neighbourhood plans establish general planning policies and play an important part in decisions on planning applications. Having a Neighbourhood Plan also means that parishes receive a greater proportion of Community Infrastructure Levy arising from developments in their area than those without a Neighbourhood Plan.
Neighbourhood planning activity
can only formally take place in areas specifically designated by us as a neighbourhood area.
