Bridport Councils Work Together On Neighbourhood Plan

Bridport Sign

8:19am 16th July 2014

Local councils in the Bridport area are working together on a Neighbourhood Plan.

The local community will have more of a say over things like where new houses are built and where shops go.

It will be a statutory document that will influence future planning decisions in the area.

Cllr Sarah Williams, Leader of Bridport Town Council, said: "It is really good to be working with the other local councils on this exciting and important project for the area.

"Whilst the councils will oversee the production of the plan, this process will be led by the community. I hope that people will take part in the many consultation events that will be held and also come forward to participate in the Steering Group and working groups.

"This is a great opportunity for all of us who live and work in the area to decide how we want the area to develop."
