What Is A Neighbourhood Plan

The Stowey Sutton Parish Council Neighborhood Plan is an opportunity for local residents to influence what happens in the parish over the next ten years. Neighborhood plans will also form part of the B&NES Core Strategy and should reflect the views of the community, but must also be in general conformity with the policies contained within the B&NES Core Strategy.

Having a Neighborhood Plan for Stowey Sutton will mean that we, as a community, can set out a shared vision including planning policies for the development and use of land within the parish. The Neighborhood Plan should reflect how we see living and working in the community over the next ten years. This should include current things that we wish to preserve as well as anticipating the changing and future needs of the community.

The parish council has a duty to enable a community led approach to develop the neighborhood plan, which is managed by a steering group consisting of parish councilors & volunteers from the community, the chart below explains how the plan is developed.
