Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield & Tapton (BBEST) Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 16 Consultation

Closes 20 Mar 2020

Opened 7 Feb 2020


The Government’s Localism Act offers rights and powers for communities. This includes Neighbourhood Planning where a community can come together and produce a plan to shape how their local area should develop and grow.  For example, your local community have the opportunity to:

  • say where you think new houses, businesses and shops should be built
  • have a say on what buildings should look like
  • grant planning permission for new developments that you want to see go ahead.

Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield and Tapton (BBEST) was designated as a Neighbourhood Forum for 5 years from 24 January 2015 and has recently been re-designated for a further 5 years from 24 January 2020
