Presentation on Our Plan so far….

2014 AGM & Consultation

2014 AGM & Consultation

Please join us for a review & discussion on the five themes underlying the development of Our Neighbourhood Plan.  We will also discuss some of the capital Development Projects arising from these themes, treat you to some nuggets of social history relating to our local buildings, and have a peek at ideas for the library design.  This will be one of the last big events to discuss and agree what will be in the plan before the draft policies are developed, so make sure you are there!

Saturday, November 7th at Broomhill Methodist Church (next to Oxfam) 15:00-17:30

light refreshments provided, retiring to the pub afterward

Summer 2015 update

Thanks to everyone who came to the Broomhill Festival and participated in the BBEST events.  It was quite a success.

Moving forward, we have an action packed season coming up between September and November when we will be presenting the draft policies for our plan in a workshop and discussion format at the Broomhill Methodist Church (Next to Oxfam) on November 7th from 3-5:30pm.  Please mark your diaries and ask all your neighbours to come.  This will be a critical point for understanding the plan, making comment and incorporating any changes before we submit the plan for council review and external audit. We are counting on you to help spread the word about the importance of this event.

If you would like to get involved before November or just have a question, please get in touch at We are dedicated to making our neighbourhood plan a true reflection of our community’s vision for the future. To that end, we encourage everyone who lives or works in the BBEST area to participate.
