BBEST Countdown to Consultation Event 7th July 2018

Thank you!

…for making our Countdown to Consultation Event on 7 July such a success! On a lovely sunny day some 35 people found their way to the Broomhill Library Garden Room and enjoyed home made cake, previews of the new Broomhill Retailer website, a wander around the library garden, and a chance to review and discuss our Neighbourhood Draft Plan.

We’re delighted to announce that BBEST Steering Group approved the start of the first formal 6 week consultation period to begin on 1st October 2018. Information for the consultation will be on the website and hard copies will be available for review at the Broomhill Library.

The six week consultation period will include a formal collection of comments via the website and library. Make sure you feed back with constructive comments, and of course your support for the plan, on the official forms.

Watch this space for further details.

In the meantime, have a look at the Broomhill retail website at There is a fantastic history of the retail district with incredible photos alongside information about our locally owned retailers and community organisations. Supporting your local retailers is a great way to keep money in the community and build long-term relationships which help our community to thrive. Many thanks to Jonathon, the owner of Pavilion Flowers, for putting such a great resource together for us all to benefit from.

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.
