Welcome to Congresbury Parish Council
NEW VILLAGE HALL/COMMUNITY CENTRE SURVEY UPDATE
The New Village Hall/Community Centre has provided the following with regard to the recent survey;
'The project team have been researching
a whole range of fundraising options, and one of which was the possibility of
the Parish Council taking out a Public Works loan. As you are probably aware
this would have required an increase in household’s council tax, villagers were
asked to respond to a simple survey. The Council and project have reviewed the
418 responses, which showed 266 respondents did not support the council taking
out a loan with 152 saying they did.
The survey generated a lot of comment
but only 28% of households in the village responded. Obviously this is
disappointing and the Development Committee have discussed and confirmed their
commitment to move the project forward. We have come so far and many villagers,
village organisations and businesses have put a lot of time and effort in
support of the project. We can now focus on other options.'

CONGRESBURY NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
The consultation period has now been completed for the Neighbourhood Development Plan. The next stage is a report to the North Somerset Council Executive Committee. The report will be presented on 19th March 2019 and the recommendations are as follows;
'It is resolved that the Congresbury Neighbourhood Development Plan meets the criteria necessary under Schedule 4B of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act (as amended) and can proceed to examination. That North Somerset Council’s comments on the submitted Congresbury Neighbourhood Plan as set out in Appendix 1 are submitted to the Neighbourhood Plan examiner, along with comments received through the Regulation 16 consultation (a schedule of which are set out in Appendix 2).' The full report can be accessed here including all submitted comments.
The Plan will then be sent to the examiner which means the plan is a step closer to referendum. Many thanks to those who submitted comments.
