NDP Steering Group Application
Neighbourhood Planning gives communities the power to develop a shared vision for their area. Neighbourhood Development plans can shape, direct and help to deliver sustainable development by influencing local planning decisions as part of the statutory development plan.
Bilbrook Parish Council (BPC) is seeking to assemble a well-matched and skilled team of volunteers for our Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group who are able to make monthly meetings and undertake tasks in between. It is a responsible position, and it will affect all Bilbrook residents, community organisations, and businesses.
The Steering Group will act as the Board of Directors for the plan and will answer to BPC which is the accountable body. The Steering Group will be responsible for consulting the community and working with officers and professional planners to ensure that the Neighbourhood Plan is fit for purpose.
The Steering Group will be composed of elected Bilbrook Parish Councillors and members of the community. We are looking for a range of skills and experience so that we can put together the most effective team.
If you feel that you have the skills we need to undertake this major project and are willing to commit your time, we would love to hear from you.
