Bovingdon Neighbourhood Plan

Designating the Neighbourhood Area

The application for the Neighbourhood Area designation was for the whole of Bovingdon Parish. A public consultation on the application was held (see below for details) and in December 2018, after considering comments received, we officially designated the Neighbourhood Area for Bovingdon.

What happens next?

Bovingdon Parish Council will bring forward a neighbourhood plan to influence planning applications in the area.

Public consultation

Bovingdon Parish Council applied to designate its parish area as a neighbourhood area. This is the first step towards creating a neighbourhood plan for the area.

Once a council adopts a neighbourhood plan, it sits alongside the development plan for the area and is used to influence decisions on planning applications in the neighbourhood area.

We received an application on 13 June 2018 and held a consultation between 16 October and 30 November 2018. The application included:

Please note: this was not a consultation on the neighbourhood plan itself, but merely the identification of the area for which the parish council wishes to prepare a neighbourhood plan.
