A vision for Burbage is waiting on YOUR opinion

IT HAS taken a while to reach this important stage, but the first full-on sighting of a plan likely to influence the future of Burbage is now available to the people who live here. Along with those who work or conduct business in the area, and all statutory consultees, they can take a look at the Draft Burbage Neighbourhood Development Plan, before its submission for approval.

Residents and interested parties, are invited to read the Draft Plan and make comments.

There will be a six week consultation period in which to do this from 9th October 2017 until 20th November 2017

The plan represents months of investigation, research and opinion-gathering in which volunteer teams (with some professional help) sought to establish the optimum future shape and development of the parish. Their work started in 2015 and topics addressed have ranged from housing development to heritage, transport and highways to employment and commerce issues. Arriving at a wish list for the parish involved countless consultations, to ensure the draft plan embraces the community's right to engage in neighbourhood planning.

You can view all documents at the Official Burbage Neighbourhood Plan website, where an online pre-submission comments form is available:-



You can view the Draft Plan document below.

A paper copy will be available to view, during the consultation period, at the Burbage Parish Council Office at Millennium Hall, Britannia Road, Burbage, LE10 2HF.
The office is open Monday-Friday, between 9am-12pm.

A pre-submission comments form will be available for public responses as a paper copy which can be collected from the Parish Office or you can download the document below.

Completed comments forms can be posted in a drop-off box at the Parish Office, or electronic forms emailed to neighbourhoodplanning@ruralcc.org.uk .
Alternatively, post response forms to John Preston, Neighbourhood Planning Officer, Rural Community Council (Leicestershire & Rutland), Community House,
133 Loughborough Road, Leicester, LE4 5LQ.

Forms must be returned by 20th November 2017.

It is the last time the Burbage Neighbourhood Plan Group will be asking people for their comments. All responses received by that date will be considered by the team and may be utilised to amend the Plan.
