Our Neighbourhood Development Plan (the "NDP") has been developed to establish a vision for the parish and to help deliver the local community's aspirations and needs
Building from our Brimscombe and Thrupp Parish Plan 2011 – 2016, our Neighbourhood Development Plan will be a planning policy document that will be a statutory document incorporated into the district planning framework and must be used by Stroud District Council to determine planning applications in our parish.
Every effort has been made to ensure that the views and policies contained in this document reflect the views of Brimscombe and Thrupp parish residents.
Some of the key benefits of our Plan are to:
- Enable the community to play its part in addressing climate change
- Protect the parish from uncontrolled or poorly placed development
- Ensure that development is sympathetic to and improved the look and feel of the parish
Process for registering assets of community value
- Parish Biodiversity Information
The information on biodiversity status and opportunities within the parish has been produced in cooperation with the Gloucestershire Ecosystem Service and forms part of the body of evidence on which we drew in formulating our NDP.

- Neighbourhood Plan Archive
The Steering Group set up to develop this plan has held a number of consultation events and meetings to gather input from the community. This archive site was set up before the Parish Council launched its new website and is an invaluable source of background information on the project.
