Following on from the two Open Evenings which were well attended and hopefully enlightened the Community as to where the Neighbourhood Plan is at this stage, and where it is going in the future, bearing in mind our Vision for Bramley.


In 2029 Bramley will be an attractive village with a strong rural character, excellent and conveniently located community facilities, a range of high quality homes fulfilling local needs, safe and convenient access to transport services and green spaces, and good opportunities for locally based employment.

We are now looking forward to receiving the feedback from the community to help the steering group move the plan to the next stage, to produce the policies to achieve the Vision and Strategic Aims.

As explained at the meetings, the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has identified 21 potential sites all with their individual characteristics which will be fully assessed using the assessment criteria. By way of example, there are 6 sites listed on the Feedback form for you to comment on. The form can be completed and posted as directed or completed on-line. Full assessment of the sites has yet to be completed and presentation to the Parish Council has yet to take place.

The map showing the 21 sites is below: (click on the image to see a larger version)

  • As the owner of Bramley garage and the shops my concerns are the increased pedestrian and traffic in our immediate area, especially since the development of the old C.A.D. I would hope that any further development would consider the impact on the business’s in the area by foot or road and general traffic problems we incur every day.

    I was born here and my grandparents owned what is now strawberry fields. There was a butcher,grocer,paper shop/newsagents/post office,doctors surgery,garage and 3 other general stores. We actually have less facilities for the village today than we had in 1968. I would hope development would facilitate a village centre to accommodate a further extended Bramley.

  • The sites for development do not include any land down Cufaude Lane.
    I and my 2 neighbours own 3 fields which could be developed in conjunction with Cufaude Farm opposite us. We have already submitted representations for the “LDP” to be amended to include our land. Please can you add our site ?
