Countdown to Consultation 7th July 18

The ‘Countdown to Consultation’ drop-in meeting will take place on at 1100-1400 on 7th July 2018 in the Library ‘Garden Room’ – which will be signposted.


Come along and meet the team and discuss the first airing of the Plan.  There will be lots of things to do including the launch of the new Broomhill Centre Retailers Group**, a table for children and, not least, a chance to see parts of the Library building that are not normally on view.  There’ll be a cake sale with proceeds shared between BBEST and the Library – so look out your favourite recipe!


Make a date in your diary – and look for more information nearer the time.  We aim to launch the formal public consultation in October, so this really is the start of final phase.


**Broomhill Centre Retailers Group
Meet local retailers who, as a result of BBEST engagement, are now working together for the benefit of our centre.  You can hear more about their new website showcasing everything our area has to offer. Follow their progress now at

2017 Planning Ahead

We are looking forward to a packed year ahead leading to our community consultation on the neighbourhood plan at the end of the year.  If you would like to be involved in pulling together the plan into its official form, we would love to hear from you. We have open forum meetings planned for June and November, but there is a lot going on between these times and everyone is encouraged to get in touch and get involved.
