Welcome to the Parish Council's page for the Bagworth, Thornton and Stanton-under-Bardon Neighbourhood Plan

The joint Neighbourhood Plan for Bagworth, Thornton and Stanton-under-Bardon affords an opportunity for our community to shape and guide future development that will occur in our area and ensure that it meets our needs and aspirations.

The Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group has been established jointly by Bagworth & Thornton Parish Council and Stanton-under-Bardon Parish Council with a mandate to create a Neighbourhood Plan which will present a vision and produce policies for the future development of our area.

In order to create the Plan, the Steering Group will need to consult residents, businesses, organisations and other legitimate stakeholders in order to ensure the end product satisfies all parties. The completed Plan, once accepted by the Planning Authority, will become part of the statutory development plan for the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council area. This means that local authority or planning inspectors will have to make decisions based on Neighbourhood Plan policies and any other material matters when considering planning applications or appeals in the area covered by the Neighbourhood Plan.

Follow the links below to take you to the official website which will track the progress of the project stage by stage and other documentation.
