Our Neighbourhood Plan

Our Neighbourhood Plan will now act as our legal community voice on all future planning applications in Catshill and North Marlbrook.

At a meeting of the District Council on 3rd November 2021, a decision was taken to ‘make’ the Neighbourhood Plan which now forms part of the statutory development plan for determining planning applications in the neighbourhood area of Catshill and North Marlbrook Parish.

The ‘made’ Neighbourhood Plan approved by referendum can be viewed on this website

Should Bromsgrove District Council not be able to demonstrate a five-year supply of sites suitable for housing, our Plan will legally protect us from speculative planning applications being automatically approved in the Catshill and North Marlbrook Parish.
