Dear Sir/Madam
I am writing to inform you that the Old Market Quarter Neighbourhood Development Plan has been formally submitted to Bristol City Council by the Old Market Quarter Neighbourhood Development Forum and to invite you to make comments on the document.
Neighbourhood Development Plans are planning policy documents prepared by local communities. Before the Old Market Quarter Neighbourhood Development Plan can become a statutory planning document, it must be published for consultation and passed to an independent examiner for scrutiny. If successful at examination, the Neighbourhood Development Plan will proceed to a local referendum to decide whether it should become part of the development plan for Bristol and be used alongside the Bristol Local Plan to determine planning applications in the Old Market Quarter.
The local community and stakeholders have already been involved in the preparation of the plan, but there is now a further opportunity for you to comment and have your views passed to the examiner for consideration. Representations can be made for a six-week period from Monday 9th February 2015 to Monday 23rd March 2015. Please be aware that all representations will be publicly available.
The deadline for representations is Monday 23rd March 2015. Representations should be sent to:
·       By e-mail:
·       By post: Strategic City Planning Team (Brunel/2nd Floor/Brunel Wing), Bristol City Council, PO Box 3176, BS3 9FS
In making your representation, please let us know whether you would like to be notified of the final decision on the Neighbourhood Development Plan.
The proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan, along with details of the consultation undertaken to date and other supporting information, is available to download on the council’s web site ( Copies are also available to inspect in the foyer of Brunel House, St. George’s Road, Bristol BS1 5UY (Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm).
