Neighbourhood planning is a way for communities to have a say in the future of the places where they live and work. It gives you the power to produce a plan with real legal weight that directs development in your local area. It helps you:

  • choose where you want new homes, shops and offices to be built
  • have your say on what those new buildings should look like
  • grant planning permission for the new buildings you want to see go ahead
  • other aspects of village life including social facilities, connectivity, education, environment and other key issues.

Groups can get tailored advice, support and grants to develop their neighbourhood plans which must fit with the District Council's Local Plan.

We have formed a Bottisham Neighbourhood Plan Working Group.  The next meeting is on Monday 17th April at Sports and Social Club.

More details about our Neighbourhood Plan will be posted on this site in due course.
