This Policy was drawn up to ensure that, in the event Council is required to make a comment to the Local Planning Authority BEFORE it next meets, Council can meet its obligations.
Stratford-on-Avon DC requires comments to be received by a set date to ensure they meet its obligation as the Local Planning Authority. This means that, in some instances, the Parish Council has to send comments before it meets at either a Planning Committee or Parish Council Meeting.
To ensure the Parish Council meets its obligations as the representative of its electorate it was resolved that:
- The Chairman of the Planning Committee and 1 other councillor are given delegated powers to reply to minor applications.
- In the case of major or controversial applications an extraordinary Planning Committee Meeting be arranged to consider the application.
REVIEWED BY BIDFORD-ON-AVON PARISH COUNCIL AT ITS MEETING OF 4TH MAY 2021
Planning 2011 to 2031Local Development Framework - The Core Strategy
The District Council has started to prepare a series of planning documents to guide development and change in the District over the next 20 years. They will determine where new homes are built, where new jobs are created and how people can travel to get to the things they need.
The first and most important of these documents is the Core Strategy, because it will set the course for everything to follow. It will present a vision of how we want the District to look and function in 2026.
There are some big challenges facing our District, which the Core Strategy will need to address such as:
- Where should new homes be built and new jobs located?
- How can we meet the housing needs of local people?
- How can we reduce the impacts of climate change?
- How can we make sure everyone can reach the services they need?
- How do we protect our rich heritage and landscape?
The Parish Council, as well as the local community, has been asked to respond to the Core Strategy Consultation paper, and you will find the replies sent by the Parish Council on this site.
The Localism Act, which received its Royal Assent on 15 November 2011 "sets out a series of measures with the potential to achieve a substantial and lasting shift in power away from central government and towards local people." (Greg, Clark MP Minister of State for Decentralization).
Neighbourhood Planning is a new way for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and/or work. Where they want new homes, shops, offices. What they should look like. When they should be built.
The Plan will influence the future of Bidford-on-Avon parish, including Barton, Broom and Marlcliff – homes, jobs, transport, etc. so it is important that ALL participate to ensure future Bidford is what the Bidford community want it to be.
Neil Pearce, a planning consultant, made a great presentation at a meeting on 24 November which can be read below.
