COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE FEBRUARY 2019
Community Plan – Village Meeting Thursday 21st February Village Hall 7.30pm
The Village is facing many challenges: the building of 125 new houses in the Green Belt (at the time of writing we await the Planning Inspector's decision); traffic and parking problems that look like getting worse; the need to agree on a set of strategic priorities for improving the Village; the difficulty of making the Village's opinion heard by the Authorities.
This meeting is an opportunity for each villager to have a say in the Village's future:
• to discuss and ideally endorse the priorities set out in the latest Community Plan Report, which was based on the Village Appraisal, a questionnaire to all villagers;
• set up Action Groups to tackle the key priorities and if possible, agree on specific Action Plans
The East Bridgford Community Plan 2019 will be presented to The Village Meeting on 21st February. This document can be downloaded as a pdf, using the below link:

1. Community Plan Interim Report: June 2018
Rushcliffe Borough Council has published its Local Plan, which proposes 125 new homes in East Bridgford's Green Belt. As a result, the Community Plan Group has brought forward the publication of the Community Plan. It is in an interim format, without illustrations and maps, but with the full text.
A copy has been sent to the Parish Council and to some other interested parties. It is now publicly available and can be downloaded here:
EBCP interim 160618.pdf
This Interim Report summarises the findings of the 2016 Appraisals (the most extensive assessment yet of village opinion on a wide range of issues, including housing and the Green Belt) and proposes a series of policies.
We recommend villagers start by reading the four-page Executive Summary, before studying those sections that are of particular interest.
2. Community Plan Interim Report: The Evidence Base
The findings of the main Household Appraisal (45% of households responded, accounting for some 632 adults) are now available in detailed tabular form as a download:

Additional information comes from the EB Census data for 2011; this is also available as a download:

Community Plan Update 16 March 2017 - The Green Belt
Rushcliffe Borough Council is preparing Local Plan Part 2 which will cover further policies and proposals for housing, Green Belt, employment, retail, open spaces and nature conservation.
Potential housing developments in the Green Belt surrounding East Bridgford were the subject of the RBC consultation event on 17th March in East Bridgford Village Hall.
EB residents now have until March 31st to submit comments to RBC.
The EB Community Plan Appraisal questionnaires tell us much about the village’s attitudes to development in EB and the Green Belt. So the Community Plan Group has summarised the data in the following report.
Green Belt Appraisal
Update - January 2017
