Neighbourhood Plan for Broadstairs and St Peter's.
We have nearly completed Stage One: Getting Established.
What happens next?
Thank you to everyone who responded to the District Council consultation on the designation area for our Neighbourhood Plan.
Thanet District Council's cabinet will now consider the designation in the first few months of 2015, probably in April.
Why has the Town Council asked for a Neighbourhood Plan area covering all of Broadstairs and St Peter's? It carried out its own consultation, and 92% of respondents said the Neighbourhood Plan area should be the same as the boundary of the parish of Broadstairs and St. Peter's. The other reasons are set out in the Town Council's application for designation to Thanet District Council.
