Batheaston Welcome

A Neighbourhood Plan for Batheaston, the Think Tank and a Questionnaire

Batheaston Parish Council are taking the first steps in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan

A brightly coloured container, which has been called the Think Tank, will be appearing at various locations around the Village with an invitation to complete a short anonymous questionnaire (click here for online version).

The Think Tank

The first location for the Think Tank was at Batheaston Primary School where the children were encouraged to say what they liked and disliked about living in Batheaston.

From the School, the Think Tank made a visit to the Medical Centre, then onto the Fat Friar, the George and Dragon and the Wednesday morning Coffee Shop.

On Sunday 17th August, the Think Tank made a Church appearance at St John The Baptist, where Rev Isobel Rathbone (right) and Pam Burcombe encouraged the congregation to make a contribution of their ideas !

Throughout the remainder of August and September the Think Tank and a set of smaller Think Tanks will be placed throughout the Village giving residents plenty of opportunity to "Have their Say".


The Questionnaire

The questionnaire (online version - click here)anonymous unless you provide contact details, will provide an opportunity for residents to say what is important to them, make suggestions and register an interest in being involved in the creation of the Neighbourhood Plan.

The questionnaire is also available on this website accessed by Clicking Here.

(If contact details are supplied, they will only be used in conjunction with the Neighbourhood Plan process) 

What is Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

Batheaston Parish Council, committed last year, to proceed with a Neighbourhood Plan which will seek to establish how residents wish to see the village evolve, what and where development should take place and not least what should be enhanced and protected. 

The Process

The whole process, being managed through the Neighbourhood Plan Committee, could take 18 months to complete, will need volunteers from within the community and briefly will include

More details will be provided over the coming weeks so please keep an eye on this page.
