Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan
Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan 

Pre Submission Draft Consultation - Summer 2018


The Pre  Submission consultation draft of the Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan was launched on Monday July 2nd 2018 and public consultation ran until 7th September 2018.


The Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan has been developed with input from over 100 local people across and covers the communities of Allington, Bothenhampton & Walditch, Bradpole, Symondsbury, Bridport and West Bay.


During the consultation local people were asked to decide whether the objectives, policies and projects set out in the Plan would ensure that the Bridport area remains a place we can all be proud of, with an improved supply of homes for local people, better public facilities, employment opportunities and a reduced carbon footprint.


During October all consultation responses will be considered by the Community Steering Group and reccomendations for amendments to the Plan will be put to the Joint Councils Committee.


A revised Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan will be submitted to the Local Planning Authority in December 2018.

Next Steps


Now that the consultation period is closed all the comments received will be gathered together and an official consultation statement produced. The Joint Councils Committee, comprising representatives from Bridport Town Council and the Parishes of Allington, Bradpole, Bothenhampton and Walditch , will consider all the views and opinions submitted and set out how the plan is to be amended as a result.


The revised neighbourhood plan will then be formally submitted to West Dorset District Council, the local planning authority. Once complete, the Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan will become a statutory planning document and will be used to guide developments in the Bridport Area  until 2036.
