Brookwood & Bridley Neighbourhood Forum


Brookwood Ward

Brookwood and Bridley Neighbourhood Forum is an initiative by residents and businesses in Brookwood and the surrounding area to have more of a say in changes that affect us.

Legislation introduced by the government under the Localism Act gives people a new found voice in local affairs.

See the BBNF website

    What are the benefits of a Neighbourhood Plan?
  • Empower local people to take a proactive role in shaping the local area.
  • Allow local people to identify where future development should go in the area.
  • Local people can specify the form, size, type and design of new development.
  • Will provide greater certainty for developers. They will know what the local people want to see developed in the area.
  • Keep a local identity in an ever changing environment.
  • Allow more of the proceeds from the Community Infrastructure Levy which all developers must pay to be spent in the Neighbourhood area.

What if I don't have the time? You will still have your say at a referendum in the future.
I'm not sure I have useful skills. Neighbourhood planning requires a vast array of skills. Everyone working together will allow our community to have our say on how our area develops over time.
