Bishop’s Tachbrook Parish Council, as the qualifying body, has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan with the help of the community. The Bishop’s Tachbrook Neighbourhood Development Plan (BTNDP) has been through two formal consultation processes where the views of parishioners and other interested parties have been received, considered and, where appropriate, acted on. The plan has now been assessed by an independent planning inspector and the changes suggested incorporated into a final copy.

The BTNDP now has to be approved, through referendum, by registered voters in the parish. The date for the referendum will be Thursday 30th September 2021. The question on the ballot paper will be:

“Do you want Warwick District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Bishop’s Tachbrook to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

You will be able to answer YES or NO. This is not a consultation where comments can be considered it is a strict decision on whether, on balance, you think the BTNDP will, or will not, be a useful addition to the planning process as it applies to the parish.
