Have your say! Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire

The Past; Some 10 years ago residents produced The Boreham Village Design Statement which recorded their agreed view for the future of Boreham. This has proven to be an important reference document within the planning processes and its existence has been vital in protecting our village environment. However, changes in planning legislation mean that the Village Design Statement needs to be replaced by a Neighbourhood Plan to which we, the residents, together with those who work or run businesses in Boreham have an opportunity to contribute. This Plan will help us produce our shared vision for the future, and influence the conservation, management and development of the village and the wider parish.

The Present; Our Neighbourhood Plan for Boreham will complement Chelmsford City Council’s Local Plan. Our Plan cannot contradict that of City Council, but it can add to it and make clear our wishes on a range of matters, such as housing, that particularly affect Boreham Parish. Once complete the Neighbourhood Plan will last for the life of the Chelmsford Local Plan, so through to 2036. More information on Neighbourhood Plans can be found on the Ministry of Housing,
Communities and Local Government website https://www.gov.uk/guidance/neighbourhood-planning–2

Boreham’s Questionnaire The legislative processes require wide consultation throughout the Parish and this concept is fully supported by the Parish Council. Accordingly, a Steering Group of residents was set up to collate the views of all those who live in, work in or run businesses in the Parish. It has been decided that the best way to start the process is by means of a questionnaire.
The Future and Your Opportunity; Could you please take a few minutes now to complete the Questionnaire and make your contribution to the creation of our Neighbourhood Plan which will last for 15 years or so. Our Questionnaire will be delivered to every household/ business in the Parish of Boreham. It is a key part of the process of developing a Neighbourhood Plan which, when completed, will be adopted by Chelmsford City Council as planning policy. It will then become a material consideration in the determination of planning applications and can influence the design of future development and environmental improvements in Boreham village. Your answers will be collated and used in the preparation of the Neighbourhood Plan for Boreham

Please return your completed questionnaire by 31st January, you can put it into one of the collecting boxes at A.G. Smith Butchers, the Boreham Co op, Boreham Post Office and Boreham Pharmacy or you can post it through the letter box at the Parish Council office. If you have any questions please contact borehampc@hotmail.com
Please help us by filling out this questionnaire and YOU will have the opportunity to have a real say on the future development of Boreham village.
