A Neighbourhood Plan for BBEST (Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield, and Tapton Area Planning Forum)

Play a part in the preparation of a plan for the area you live in!
The Government has introduced new planning rules which give more power to local people.
Communities such as ours are being encouraged to prepare Neighbourhood Plans which will give them more influence over what happens in their area. A group of residents in consultation with local Community Associations, representing most parts of the BBEST area, have come together as the BBEST Neighbourhood Planning Forum with the aim of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for the area. This will set out a vision for the neighbourhood in which we live and set out our priorities for the future. Sheffield City Council will have to take the plan into account when making planning and development decisions. The plan will also help the community to secure funding for projects to improve the area. Our inaugural Annual General Meeting will be held at Broomhill Methodist Church (next to Oxfam in Broomhill centre) between 6.00 – 7.30 pm on the 10th December, 2013 to give you an opportunity to contribute your ideas and for members to vote for officers and a steering committee to take the plan forward. We would welcome your attendance to ensure all parts of the community are represented.
