Welcome to Upper Broughton Neighbourhood Draft (Plan Pre-Submission) site and documentation.
A Neighbourhood Plan sets local planning policies which say how future development should be considered. When approved, it will be used by Rushcliffe Borough Council to help decide future planning applications. It is prepared by and for you, the people and businesses of the parish.
Your views were sought at a public meeting in 2016, and through a questionnaire in October 2017. Using this information, a draft plan has been prepared. The Parish Council now need to know what the residents and businesses of the Parish think about the proposal.
It is crucial to get your views on this Draft Plan.

How can I talk to someone about the Neighbourhood Plan?
There is a drop in session at the Village hall on Saturday 30th June between 10 -12 a.m. Copies of the Pre-Submission Plan will be available. Members of the Parish Council and the Steering Group will be on hand to help with questions and guidance.
The time frame in which comments are invited is formally known as the “consultation period”, and by law must last for at least six weeks.
The consultation period for the Upper Broughton Draft (Pre-Submission) Plan will run from Monday 11th June, to Monday 30th July 2018.
The Plan seeks to ensure that future development makes Upper Broughton a stronger more vibrant community, with enhanced environmental impact and better provision for economic activities, whilst maintaining the “special feel” of a characterful, small semi-rural village. This means:
Important open spaces and views are protected
Local services and facilities are retained
Heritage is conserved
The character and beauty of the countryside is safeguarded
Housing development reflects local needs
The parish is home to a range of small-scale businesses
