Bramley Neighbourhood Plan
Under the Localism Act, local communities are able to take a much greater level of control of significant decisions affecting their area. Since 2017, Bramley Parish Council has been working on a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish, which has legal force in planning.
This document follows a set structure nationally and allows Bramley to take greater control of what gets developed where in the parish, and how, to the year 2032. It will also allow Bramley to have more influence with Waverley Borough Council.
Current status - formal submission to Waverley Borough Council
Formal (Regulation 14) consultation on the draft Neighbourhood Plan took place from 12th January to 22nd February 2019. During this consultation, we received many comments from local residents, businesses and other statutory consultees, all of which were reviewed and changes were made to the Plan where relevant.
A final draft of the Plan and accompanying documents was submitted to Waverley Borough Council in March 2020. The Planning Policy team at Waverley is carrying out a basic legal compliance check on the plan and supporting documents. Should the documents be compliant, this will be confirmed by the Head of Planning and Economic Development and the Plan can proceed to the next stage which is the Regulation 16 consultation.
