Barnack Parish Council


Neighbourhood Plan for Barnack and Pilsgate

Barnack‚Äôs involvement in local planning and development is long-standing. This includes the production of the Village Design Statement  in 2001 and publication of the first Parish Plan in 2005. In response to the 2011 Localism Act, Barnack Parish Council decided to revisit these documents, and in 2014 a new Parish Action Plan was drawn up.The Parish Action Plan is reviewed every two years with a hard copy being delivered to every household in the Parish.

In December 2017 Barnack Parish Council held a public meeting to investigate the level of community support for producing a Neighbourhood Plan. In a subsequent poll, 84% of the votes cast were in favour of producing one. In July 2018 the Parish Council decided to go ahead with a Neighbourhood Plan and appointed a Working Group to draft it.

Barnack Neighbourhood Area was formally designated in February 2019, comprising the whole of Barnack Parish excluding Burghley Park and Burghley House.
