WELCOME

TO THE WEBSITE OF THE BERE PENINSULA PLAN GROUP

 

Our website describes in detail the formal process that we are undertaking to establish a Neighbourhood Plan for the Bere Peninsula, together with the reasons for doing it, and is primarily to provide information for the benefit of residents of the Parish. As we proceed through the project, we will gradually develop it to become a complete record and archive of the Group’s activities.

 

Full details of the process and the Group's activities are contained in the pages listed in the

menu on the left side of this HOME PAGE.

OUR OBJECTIVE

 - is to create a NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN for the Bere Peninsula up to 2034 that takes account of the sustainable homes, infrastructure and amenity developments that will be needed to accommodate anticipated population growth; at the same time conserving the essential rural nature of the area and conforming to the requirements and constraints of World Heritage, AONB, SSSI and Conservation Area designations.


AONB = Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
SSSI = Site of Special Scientific Interest
