2021 Volunteers

Site Assessment Working Group

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee are looking for volunteers to establish a Site Assessment Working Group. We believe a group of 4 – 6 individuals reporting back to the NPSC will be required to complete the work in a timely manner.

We have already performed a call for sites and contacted known local landowners directly to establish a list of potential development sites. We now need to assess these sites and decide which (if any) can be allocated for development. This is what the working group will be focusing on. Members of the working group will need to;

  • Cross reference submissions with BDC Local Plan and existing planning applications.
  • Liaise with BDC planning department regarding site submissions.
  • Establish site assessment criteria.
  • Produce a list of preferred sites

Please note that the final decision regarding which of the available sites will be put forward for development will be facilitated by the working group and made in consultation with the general public and Braintree Planning Department. 

If you are interested in assisting with this aspect of the Neighbourhood Plan please email or call 07716 652252. Please do ensure that you let us know whether you have any relevant experience.
