Meeting news 15th October 2015:

NPN / BCC Quarterly meeting 

A reminder that the next meeting is next Thursday, at Brunel House 5.30pm to 7pm.

Unfortunately, our speaker from UWE, who was going to present a paper on the reason why student housing seems to be the main form of residential development currently, has had to cancel due to work commitments.

The items on the agenda will therefore be:

The Joint Spatial Plan: the Issues and Options paper is going to the Strategic Leaders Board meeting the following day, for approval before it goes out to consultation in November. This is therefore an opportunity to hear about the background to the plan, before the consultation opens.

The Agenda and reports can be downloaded from this page.

The updated Statement of Community Involvement: following the consultation, a revised version, that takes account of comments made during consultation, is currently being drafted.
Please can you confirm whether you will be attending this meeting? Please note the meeting is open to members of NPN residents planning groups only.
