Bunbury Neighbourhood Plan Group Amended Constitution

The Constitution has been amended because Councillor Eric Lord resigned from Bunbury Parish Council and the Bunbury Neighbourhood Plan Group (BNPG). Because of the advanced stage of the plan it was decided that Eric would not be replaced on the BNPG and the constitution was amended accordingly, with its membership now comprising three Parish Councillors and up to four individuals who are resident or work within the parish

Policy Survey Results

Here are all the results taken from the responses to the Policy Survey. See links below to the results and the survey document. The results will help us to write the final version of the Neighbourhood Plan, which will be delivered to every home in the village and sent to Cheshire East for the final consultation stage. Cheshire East will then send the Plan to an Independent Examiner. After the examiners views of the plan are considered a referendum will be held, providing residents with an opportunity to vote on the Plan.
