Do you want to have a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built? Do you want to have an input into the facilities and services on offer in Radstock?

Maybe you want to improve your high street? Or protect your favourite local spaces? Or ensure there is enough infrastructure to support new homes and residents?

Neighbourhood Planning could be right up your street.

What is a neighbourhood plan?

A neighbourhood plan is an important document with real legal force, it is:

  • A document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area, which are then used to decide whether to approve planning applications
  • Written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
  • A powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.

Local people can create a plan that allows them to develop planning policies that reflect the priorities of their area and have real legal weight. The whole community then decides at a referendum vote whether the local authority should bring the plan into force.
The Town Council has expressed its interest in completing a Neighbourhood Plan for Radstock and is seeking the views of the community and interested residents to join a Steering Group.

How can you get involved?

The Town Council has arranged to include Neighbourhood Planning as part of the Annual Town Meeting - to provide information on Neighbourhood Planning, begin to identify the key issues in the town and recruit members to the Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group. It has also prepared an initial questionnaire to seek your views on Radstock, which can be downloaded below or contact the office for further information.

Please come along to the Trinity Methodist Church, Radstock to find out more:
