Braybrooke is working on a Neighbourhood Plan, as agreed at the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Parish. A Steering Group was formed on 15 June.
A questionnaire to canvass residents views received 119 responses. The analysis of these responses can be seen here. (Note - we have not published the lengthy Appendix but its content is summarised under each section of the main report).
At its meeting on 7 December (for details see the minutes on the "Neighbourhood Plan" page) the Steering Group formed three "Theme Groups" covering housing, environment, and sustainability. Over the coming 4-5 months starting in January, these groups will examine the issues raised, formulate objectives, explore options for achieving them, and build up the evidence to support them. That will lead to a major consultation exercise in the Spring.
It is still possible for others to join one of these groups and be involved in the discussions. Anyone who wishes to do so should contact the chairman as soon as possible and in any case before 1 January.
The Neighbourhood Plan page of this website will provide more details as they emerge.
