Proposals for designating the Burpham Neighbourhood Area and Burpham Neighbourhood Forum

The Council received an application on 29 August 2012 for the designation of the Burpham Neighbourhood area and an application for the designation of the Burpham Neighbourhood Forum.[1]

A copy of the applications that have been submitted to the Council for approval can be viewed from downloading the documents from the above

The applications include:

1. a map of the proposed Burpham Neighbourhood Area and statement as to why this area is considered appropriate

2. a copy of the written constitution of the proposed Burpham Neighbourhood Forum

3. a statement setting out how the proposed Burpham Neighbourhood Forum has been composed.

The Council is required to consider the submitted applications. We will consider the extent of the area that will be covered by the Plan and the composition of the Forum that will be constituted to oversee its preparation. The Council may approve these applications, provided the legal requirements are met, including a period of public consultation.

If the Burpham Neighbourhood Forum is approved, no other organisation or body may be designated for that neighbourhood area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.
