Steeple Bumpstead Neighbourhood Plan

BDC planning website:

The Steeple Bumpstead Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is drawing up a Neighbourhood Plan which will help decide the future of the village between now and 2033. It gives the community the chance to have an influence over planning policy and an opportunity to plan our future, working alongside Braintree District Council's Local Plan.


The draft Plan has now been put out to consultation with residents.


Please note that the Consultation period (30th March 2023 - 17th May 2023) has now CLOSED.


However, the various documents which together comprise the Plan are still available to public view, following the links below:
