Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan
Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan 

Neighbourhood Plan Vision & Objectives

Developing a Shared Vision

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for
their neighbourhood”

paragraph 183 of the National Planning Policy Framework. Each stage of the Bridport Area
Neighbourhood Plan process has sought to extend the amount of common ground between residents, business groups and other stakeholders, narrowing down various options through a transparent and open process. At all stages, the neighbourhood planning process has allowed room for dissent and minority views, but the overall aim of the process has been to build a broad-based consensus around the policies and projects.


This process involved establishing a vision statement, a set of themed objectives and planning policies and projects to support these.


The planning policy sections are as follows:
• Climate Change
• Bridport Town Centre
• Access & Movement
• Community Facilities
• Economy & Employment
• Landscape & Heritage
• Housing
• Design


Neighbourhood Area Vision Statement

The Bridport area will remain a place we are proud of, with an improved supply of homes and
employment opportunities for local people, public facilities to match, and with a reduced carbon
footprint. We will preserve our rural setting, the individual characters of our town and parishes,
and ease of moving about within it
