Bridestowe and Sourton Neighbourhood Plan
The Bridestowe and Sourton Neighbourhood Plan was developed over 7 years by members of the local community after extensive consultation with as many local people and organisations as possible, and it sets out proposed rules on what developments will be permitted in the area over the next 10-15 years.
After successfully navigating the referendum in August 2021 it has been ‘made,’ to use the technical term, and now shares equal weight with WDBC’s planning policies and must be referred to when future planning applications arise within the two parishes.

Planning Our Future
Now accepted, the Neighbourhood Plan has the full force of law behind it and can potentially limit or prevent any developments not included in the plan or in line with its policies.
