The Parish Council has previously advised that we should produce a Neighbourhood Plan as a result of the Government’s Localism Bill.
The purpose will be to define what development we would find acceptable in Bramham (the whole parish, not just the village), what areas and facilities we want to protect, along with the infrastructure needed to support any development.
By doing this we will have an opportunity to influence the outcome , rather than have decisions imposed upon us. Proposals in the Neighbourhood Plan will need to be supported by residents.
Please let us know if you can help.
The committee is responsible to the Parish Council, and also links to a wider Project Board that covers Boston Spa, Clifford, Thorp Arch, Walton, Barwick in Elmet and Scholes, as well as Bramham.
This is chaired by Cllr John Proctor and has a lot of input from the Localism officer for Leeds City Council. This gives our Parish Council more support in preparing the Plan, including some savings on costs and preparation of key documents
