Neighbourhood Plan

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Localism Act 2011 enabled communities to shape new development and promote better land use in their community by preparing Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDPs). The aim of the legislation is to empower local communities to use the planning system to promote appropriate and sustainable development in their area.

 A NDP can set out a vision for an area and planning policies for the use and development of land. 

Why produce a NDP for Bromham?

The NDP covers the whole of the civil parish of Bromham. The NDP will be prepared by residents and members of the Parish Council, working as part of the Steering Group and supported by independent consultants. The overarching aim of preparing the Bromham NDP is to involve the local residents, through consultation, in decisions about how their village and rural setting develops. The NDP provides a significant opportunity for local people to influence planning decisions, as planning applications are determined by Wiltshire Council ‘in accordance with the Development Plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise’.


Steering Group agendas and minutes will be published on the Parish Council website following their approval:

Anyone can contact the Steering Group to request to be added to or removed from a list of consultees. The email address for correspondence is: Jim Butler
