Community Plan

The Church Broughton Community Plan (CLP) was published in April 2017. The Plan sets out a vision of how our community wants to develop and identifies the actions needed to achieve it.

The Plan was developed following consultation with the community through public meetings and a questionnaire that was available to all local residents. A follow-up Questionnaire is planned for early in 2021 to find out what the Community think of the work done so far and what issues they want the CLP to consider next. The Plan was produced by members of our community, for our community. A community plan does not have legal weight, and doesn’t cover planning policy, but it will be used as an action plan, a way of getting organised, raising money and implementing projects that will benefit the community.

Working Groups were set up to review and investigate the 9 key topics covering the issues and suggestions raised by members of the Community. The Action Plans setting out what each Working Group planned to do and what they have achieved so far can be found by following the links to each of the Working Groups below:

Environmental issues

Village Hall & Meeting Places

Village Shop

Roads and Transport

Work & Communications

Health & Well-being

Sports & Leisure

Development & Housing


Over the last 3 – 4 years, a lot of work has been carried out by the Working Groups to evaluate the suggestions and implement appropriate plans where possible. Examples include: starting various activity classes, organising Soup & Pud lunches, organising litter picks, establishing a Village Shop and cafe (The Hub), setting up a Walking Group, preparing a leaflet of local walks, providing advice on planning issues, providing information on how to report highway and litter issues, raising awareness about the issue of dog mess, preparing the Church Broughton Handbook, reviewing internet and mobile phone services, investigating options for village meeting places, organising a first responder scheme and training for use of the defibrillator, organising a village volunteer driver scheme and, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, setting up a support system for the vulnerable, etc.

April 2021 Questionnaire

The CLP is now seeking your feedback on what has been done so far and giving you the opportunity to say what else you would like the CLP to consider.  The Questionnaire includes a summary of what each Working Group has done in the last few years. It also includes a section on the Parish Council as a number of CLP initiatives have required Parish Council support.

We would like everyone in the Church Broughton and Barton Blount Parishes to complete a Questionnaire.  An email with the link to the Questionnaire will be sent to everyone registered on the Church Broughton directory.  If you haven’t received the link to the Questionnaire or would like a paper copy or a larger print version of the Questionnaire, please contact Nick Broad (585758) or Julia Williams (585477).  If you know anybody living in the Parishes who is not registered on the Church Broughton directory, please let them know about the Questionnaire and how to contact us.

The closing date for completion of the Questionnaire is 24th April 2021.
