Bankside Neighbourhood Plan

BOST has been instrumental in the production of the Bankside Neighbourhood plan Draft. There are some very important policies and projects that seek to increase and improve the amount of open space in the area. We are looking to designate spaces that are not designated and prioritise Community Infrastructure Levy for parks and gardens that require attention.

The draft plan can be downloaded here and a survey to gather your views is available at www.wearebankside.com. All responses have to be in by 22 May 2016.

If you haven’t got the time to read the whole Draft Plan please look at the Open Spaces Section Part G Page 33-41 and the Community Infrastructure Project list Appendix 1. Let us know if we have got it right and that we have included all the necessary projects.
