We consulted on the application by the Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield & Tapton (BBEST) Neighbourhood Forum to renew the designation of the forum for a further 5 years as required by the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

On 24 January 2020 the Interim Head of Planning designated the neighbourhood forum for a further period of 5 years.  The forum can continue working towards completion and referendum on their neighbourhood plan.

Details on the designation can be read in the decision report which is available on our website:
