Bourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan

Have your say on how our parish should be planned

What is the Bourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood planning is about letting the people who know about and care for an area, plan for it.  It is led by the residential and business community, not the council, and is about building neighbourhoods – not stopping growth.  Neighbourhood planning is optional but if adopted, a Neighbourhood Plan will have weight becoming part of the statutory plan making framework for the area.

Let’s talk about Bourne Parish. What do you like about it; what do you dislike; and how can we make Bourne a better place to live in and visit in the future?

The Bourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan (‘the BPNP’) provides us, the local community, with an important opportunity to establish a vision of what we want the Parish to be like in 2036 and to develop land use planning policies that will contribute towards achieving the vision and be used to determine planning applications.

The BPNP is concerned with shaping our built environment. It can help to protect things that we care about such as important open spaces and buildings; it can define where buildings can go and what they can be used for; and it can influence what new buildings should look like and be used to support the kind of development that we want to see.
