The communities of Allington, Bradpole, Bothenhampton, Bridport, Symondsbury and Walditch –have worked together to create a Neighbourhood Plan for their area. The Plan received significant input from a Steering Group, comprising members of each of these communities.

Public consultation on the Regulation 14 draft of the Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan closed in September 2018. With the help of the Steering Group, the Joint Councils Committee revised and approved the plan for submission in March 2019, taking account of all comments received.

Update 29 November 2019

Following publication of the Examiners Report amendments have been made to the Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan.  The ‘Referendum version’ of the BANP has now been submitted to Dorset Council and can be downloaded below. Dorset Council will set a date for the public referendum on the BANP. The referendum is expected to be in early 2020.
