Byfleet Residents Neighbourhood Forum
Byfleet Residents Neighbourhood Forum was formed in 2013 in response to the Localism Act 2011.
“Instead of local people being told what to do, the Government thinks that local communities should have genuine opportunities to influence the future of the places where they live. The Act introduces a new right for communities to draw up a neighbourhood plan”
Department for Communities and Local Government, Localism Act 2011.
The Forum was set up specifically to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Byfleet. Following a Questionnaire and a series of Drop-in Meetings, a Vision and the Issues affecting Byfleet were identified and can be viewed on The Plan page together with timescales for the project.
In 2017, a draft plan Consultation Document was produced and it is available to view online here. Hard copies were also available in key locations around the village such as the Library, Schools, Village Hall, Churches, Clubs, St Mary’s Community Centre etc.
We are now aiming to have our draft Plan available during 2021.
WBC’s plans increase the number of residents massively without any supporting infrastructure.
