Stanton Drew Neighbourhood Area Application

A number of you may have received an email from BaNES, ref: “Application to designate Stanton Drew Neighbourhood Area”.

This application for a ‘Neighbourhood Area’ is the first stage of the process for Stanton Drew Parish to create a ‘Neighbourhood Plan’.

Neighbourhood Plans are an important part of the Government’s Localism Act 2011 and SWAG is an active supporter of the process.

Please “Click Here” if you would like to see an email that we have sent to any of our subscribers that we have registered as being in Stanton Drew Parish, it explains a bit more about the Neighbourhood Area/Plan process, and why there has been an email from BaNES.

For more information on Stanton Drew Parish Neighbourhood Plan please visit the Stanton Drew Parish Council website:

Readvertised!! Extended dates for Objection!!

Planning application 13/01965/FUL is currently being readvertised by BaNES, officially from 11th July to 25th July (5pm). So anyone who ran out of time and didnt get a response into BaNES now has a chance to do so. All existing objections remain. Determination date remains 7th August 2013.

The application is readvertised due to modifications in 2 documents, there is a revised red line and a revised application form – although strangely it is dated 8th May. In addition BaNES have changed the description of the application to reflect their understanding that the spoil heaps do not and never have had B2 use.


View the application documents here. http://idox.bathnes.gov.uk/WAM/showCaseFile.do?appNumber=13/01965/FUL
