Neighbourhood Plan for Broadstairs
and St Peter's.
Update February 2017

Set out below is our progress to date:
State 1: Getting Started: COMPLETED
Thanet District Council's cabinet designated the area for the Broadstairs and St Peter's Neighbourhood Plan in June 2015.
For an interactive map, showing the Broadstairs and St. Peter's Parish Boundary, please click here and follow the blue "map" link.
Stage 2: Evidence Base: ALMOST COMPLETE
Questionnaire: A resident questionnaire was undertaken in early 2015, which was used to gauge the views of the residents of the town and ideas for the town moving forward.
Housing Need Surveys: Work was undertaken in the latter part of 2015 and early 2016 to ascertain any housing need or requirement the town might have, and whether this could be addressed in the Local Plan
Significant Route and Views: As part of the preparation for a draft plan, significant routes throughout the town were walked and identified in August and early September 2016. This piece of work is currently in the process of being drafted into a background document ready to support our Neighbourhood Plan.
Design Statement: The existing Design Statement (2011) will undergo a review during 2017 to bring it up-to-date and current.
Stage 3: Plan Drafting: GETTING STARTED in 2017
As part of the final plan and Issues and Options Paper will be produced before the summer 2017 and the final draft Neighbourhood Plan before the end of the year. Watch this space for future consultation dates.
