Publication was declined for the following item submitted to BT News

BROAD TOWN COMMUNITY LED PLANNING (CLP) GROUP

In the last BT News the (Ex) Parish Council made a number of allegations and unsubstantiated claims concerning the CLPG.

The CLPG do not wish to respond in a point by point rebuttal other than to say that if the Parish Council had debated the Broad Town Plan in an open, honest and transparent fashion it would not have got itself into a position where it could not conclude a successful Neighbourhood Plan.

If you check the Parish Council website below you will not find any documentation that supports any debate on your Neighbourhood Plan:

http://www.broad-town.co.uk/ParishCouncil/ParishCouncilDocuments/tabid/323/Default.aspx

The CLPG have consistently held meetings in an open, honest and transparent way, Full details of all its meetings can be found at: -

http://www.broad-town.co.uk/CommunityGroups/CommunityLeadPlanningGroup/tabid/187/Default.aspx

The CLPG is committed to working with any newly elected Parish Council in the event this becomes appropriate.

The next meeting will be agreed after the new Parish Council is elected and if there is a continuing need for the CLPG.

We would like to thank all those who have supported and contributed to the CLPG to date.

Update on the New-V Area Steering group – (formal minutes awaited):

  • Very confused situation for the remaining Parishes (Broad Town, Tockenham & Clyffe Pypard) within the NEW-V Area Designation due to:-
    • Official letter from Broad Town Parish Council releasing Tockenham & Clyffe Pypard cannot be submitted until Tockenham & Clyffe Pypard Parish Councils have minuted they will make a new application for designation of a new neighbourhood area;
    • All three Parishes are authorising bodies and all need to give approval for the release of any Parishes;
    • Funding no longer available from Wilts Council for NEW-V or the separate parishes;
    • No further meetings of the NEW-V Area Steering Group were expected to take place.

Community Led Planning Group

As many of you will be aware, the Government's Localism Bill will have a profound effect on proposed development in all communities. Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade Area has been chosen to pilot the production of a Neighbourhood Plan, with a Neighbourhood Planning Forum set up to take that work forward.

Peter Doyle, the Chairman of Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade Area Board and Community First support and welcome the creation of a Community Led Planning Group to help influence the development of the Neighbourhood Plan for the community area. As Ex-Chair of the Parish Plan Steering Group, I agreed to facilitate the creation of the group and am requesting volunteers to take the group forward; once created I will withdraw as it is important this group is, and is seen to be, entirely independent and representing the views of the parish. The group will:
    • Be separate from the Parish Council
    • Create their Constitution
    • Elect officers
    • Agree how often it will meet – it could be on an ‘as and when needed’ basis
    • Elect their representative on the Neighbourhood Planning Forum
 
It is not intended that membership of this group would be a huge commitment, but it will be an important group whose purpose will be to ensure the views of the people of the parish are represented on the Forum by a nominated and accountable representative. It is important for Broad Town to be aware that saying ‘No’ to development is a risk as it could leave the community vulnerable to unchallenged development. This group will therefore be a vital link between the views of the residents of Broad Town and the work being carried out on the Neighbourhood Planning Forum. So, I would encourage anyone interested in joining this group, with the aim of taking forward the views of the parish, to please contact me by 9th December.
 
Thank you
