BRADLEY Parish Council has distributed its Neighbourhood Plan consultation document to every property in the parish.

It sets out its vision and aims for the parish, covering everything from the environment and housing to transport and employment.

Cllr Derek Booth, who chairs the Neighbourhood Planning Group, said: "This is the first time that the local community has has the opportunity to have a direct say on their environment. The formation of neighbourhood plans can be of significant advantage to the grass roots of society."

The document contains a questionnaire, which should be completed and returned to the Village Shop by Monday, December 1.

The results will then be analysed and public feedback meetings will be held.
