History 1973 -
The BCA was formed in 1973 as a result of a group of residents wanting to unite and to act for the community in local affairs. In the beginning, families chose to join the association and paid 10p per person to join. An inaugural meeting was held, a committee formed and a constitution framed. 500 households joined initially. For over 30 years now, the BCA has been working for the community. Local residents have given their time and energy free of charge as they believe in Burpham as a great place to live.
The introduction of the Planning framework Policy is now well documented on the web and has resulted in the provision of the ability for the residents of Burpham to oversee their own future in respect of how their community proceeds into the future.
The Forum had it’s first inaugural meeting on the 16th June 2012 and the result was that broad agreement of way forward was agreed ....
The Forum was formerly approved on the 4th February 2013
Following the success of the Burpham Neighbourhood Plan in 2016 a unanimous decision was taken to ‘keep the Forum Format’ as opposed to moving on to become a parish. This was due to the ‘complexities' and legal requirements, along with the majority of Parish jobs are already allocated to GBC and other orgainsiations -
In 2018 the forum was duly reconstituted.
