Glastonbury Neighbourhood Plan: Call for Sites

The Glastonbury Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are preparing a Neighbourhood Plan under the provisions of the Localism Act 2011. As part of its work, the Steering Group are issuing a public ‘call for sites’ to all owners of land within the plan’s designation (Glastonbury Parish Boundary).
The purpose of this call is to identify sites which have the potential for development during the lifecycle of the completed plan (between 2015 – 2040).

‘Sites’ can include infill i.e. large gardens within which a property could be built, a barn to be converted, brownfield sites, or land in general.

If you own land within the Glastonbury Parish Boundary, and you would like it to be considered for development by the Neighbourhood Plan, you are invited to submit a site (or sites) for consideration for; residential, economic, retail, or recreational development.

There is no minimum land size, and all applications will be considered.

How to Register an Interest;

If you would like a site to be considered, please email: sarahh@glastonbury.gov.uk
Or write to; Glastonbury Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, c/o Town Council Offices, Town Hall, Magdalene Street, Glastonbury, BA6 9EL

Please include:
The landowners contact details.
The location / address of the land (a map would be extremely helpful).
Proposed land use (residential / economic / retail / or recreational).

Please respond by no later than 29th February 2024.

Yours Sincerely,
Glastonbury NHP Steering Group

Background

A Neighbourhood Plan is a mechanism for helping communities, including local residents and businesses, to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. It can be used to:
•Develop a shared vision for the neighbourhood.
•Propose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built.
•Identify and protect important local green spaces.
•Influence what new buildings should look like.

Why are we calling for sites?
This is an informal opportunity for landowners and developers to propose sites within the parish which may be appropriate for development. This exercise will not in itself decide whether a site would be allocated for development by the Neighbourhood Plan, nor will it commit the proposer(s) to applying for planning consent; but it will enable the Steering Group to better understand how the needs and wishes of the community can be met by the available land within our plan’s designation (within the Glastonbury Parish Boundary).

Site suggestions received by us will be used to guide and inform the preparation of the ‘Allocations of Land and Site Development’ section of our Neighbourhood Plan.

Thank-you for your consideration.
Glastonbury NHP Steering Group
