Call for Sites

Thank you for all your replies to the household survey last year – you can read a summary of the results below.  There will also be a presentation of the findings at our next Steering Group meeting at 6:00PM on Wednesday 20th February 2019 at the Bromyard and Winslow Town Council offices, Rowberry Street, Bromyard.  Our meetings are open to the public so do come along to find out more.

We are now embarking on the next stage of the process.  This requires us to identify land in or adjacent to Bringsty and Linton which has potential for new housing and other uses up to 2031.

Anyone with land which could be suitable and who would like it to be considered is asked to register this interest with us.  Please do so using the Site Submission Form, available below.  This will give us the information we need to make sure your site is properly assessed.  Not all sites will be necessary or acceptable.

Please send your completed Site Submission Form to the Parish Clerk, David Hunter-Miller, by 28th February 2019 (contact details are on the form).   

The sites notified to us will be professionally assessed.  We will then consider how best to take the Plan forward.

Can you help?

Brockhampton Group Parish Council is looking to produce a Neighbourhood Development Plan.  This is a statutory document that will set out a vision for the future of the parishes.  The aim is to make Brockhampton, Norton and Linton better places to live, work and visit.

A steering group has been formed to develop the plan with representatives from across the group parish and consisting of both parish councillors and members of the public.  If you have an interest in your local area and can spare a few hours or more, please contact the Parish Clerk for further details.

What is a Neighbourhood Development Plan?

There are government plans to increase housing provision by 15% in rural areas by 2031, this equates to approximately 30 new dwellings across the group parish.  A Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) sets out policies and plans for the area and gives communities direct power to choose where they want these new homes, shops and offices to be built, what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.

Neighbourhood Development Plans can:
• Decide where and what type of development should happen within the parish
• Decide what the development should look like
• Promote development of the community in line with Herefordshire Council’s Core Strategy
• Include detailed planning policies for the parish

Neighbourhood Development Plans cannot:
• Conflict with the policies within Herefordshire Council’s Core Strategy
• Be used to prevent development
• Include county matters such as waste and minerals
