Meetings of each of the BBEST working groups generally occur monthly.  We currently have five working groups running concurrent streams of research and inquiry. For more information on the Working Groups, click on the tab at the top of this page.

The Coordinating Group (formerly Steering Group) will meet approximately three to four times a year. For the dates of our forthcoming meetings, please click here.

As part of the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan, BBEST has started to gather facts about our area to help us understand what opportunities, challenges, and priorities we have.  This ‘evidence base’ will be used to support what eventually goes into our plan.  This is an ongoing process that will take into account various surveys and studies that we conduct during this process as well as any relevant previous studies and the opinions of all those who have participated directly or indirectly with BBEST.

The files below cover some evidence that is relevant throughout the Plan, for evidence that is specific to a BBEST theme please see the individual theme sections on this website.
