Neighbourhood Plan has been approved by the Bromsgrove District Council

The Neighbourhod Plan has been approved by Bromsgrove District Council (BDC) and the regulation 16 consultation has commenced.

The Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to BDC on 8th January 2021. Following a District Cabinet meeting on 18th February 2021, BDC is satisfied the Neighbourhood Plan is in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) and is therefore publicising the plan proposal and inviting representations as part of its obligations under Regulation 16.

The representation period will be open from 25th February 2021 until 8th April 2021. All representations received by the District Council will be sent to the person appointed to undertake an independent examination into the Neighbourhood Plan, specifically to determine whether the plan is deemed to meet the basic conditions set out in Schedule 48 para 8(2) of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act.

During the dates of the representation period (as shown above), the Neighbourhood Plan as well as a Consultation Statement and Basic Conditions Statement can be viewed online at www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/cnmnp or on the Neighbourhood Plan website www.catshillandnorthmarlbrookplan.org.uk  Appendices comprising the evidence base can also be viewed on this website.

Cancellation of Parish Council Events

“At a recent meeting of the Full Parish council, it was agreed that all future planned Parish Council Events would be cancelled for the remainder of the year, due to the impact of the Covid_19 pandemic.


This means that events including;


– Bonfire and Fireworks Event

– Christmas Lights Switch on

– Christmas Party


will not be going ahead this year.


The Parish council will review this decision next year (2021).”
