Neighbourhood Plan for Broadstairs and St Peter's.
We have completed Stage One: Getting Established.
Thanet District Council's cabinet designated the area for the Broadstairs and St Peter's Neighbourhood Plan in June 2015.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the District Council consultation on the designation area for the Neighbourhood Plan.
The Town Council's own consultation showed that 92% of respondents thought the Neighbourhood Plan area should be the same as the boundary of the parish of Broadstairs and St. Peter's.
What happens next?
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. to work on the policies for the Neighbourhood Plan. If you are interested in joining or just want to find out more, please contact the Town Council office.
