21st July 2015:
The Parish Council is delighted that a number of people have responded to the invitation to work with the Council on the Neighbourhood Plan. Meetings are now being set up to start this significant work.
6th May 2015:
The Parish Council has recently been considering the advantages of undertaking a Neighbourhood Plan for Westfield.
The Parish Council would like to promote the identity of Westfield as a Parish in its own right, with its own history, needs and aspirations.
The 2011 Census shows that Westfield has its own unique demographic profile. in previous years Westfield has been swallowed up within the larger Norton Radstock Town Council and has missed the opportunity to identify its own needs, and it has suffered from a lack of investment in its infrastructure. A Neighbourhood Plan to lay the foundations for the future looks like very positive way forward.
If you are interested in taking part in working on the Plan then please talk to the Parish Clerk ,Lesley Welch on 01761 410669.
On this page we will be looking to keep people informed about the progress of our Neighbourhood Plan.
We are now officially designated as a Neighbourhood Planning area. Please see attached document for details.
