Welcome to the Home of the Goodrich & Welsh Bicknor Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Here you will be able to find all minutes, documents, events and contact details for the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.




After a delay of two months, owing to pressure of work at Herefordshire Council, the Goodrich and Welsh Bicknor NDP has now reached the end of the Regulation 16 process and the NDP report has been sent for Independent Examination.

We would hope to achieve closure, with a Referendum of all those on the Goodrich and Welsh Bicknor electoral role, by the end of March 2019. However, since July this year we have been very much in the hands of others and it will remain that way for the rest of the process.

The representations made to Herefordshire Council at the Regulation 16 stage will be seen by the Independent Examiner when he reviews the NDP. (A response from our NDP Steering Group is not part of this process.) The Independent Examination process may require changes to be made and, again, the final document has to be approved by Herefordshire Council before they order the Referendum to be held.
