About us


The Neighbourhood Plan is prepared with Tredington Parish Council.

In 2017 the Parish Council organised two public meetings public meetings on 24th February 2017 at Blackwell Village Hall and on the 25th April, 2017 in Newbold Village Hall. At these meetings Cllr Deborah Williams asked for volunteers to assist with the task and the Tredington Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group was formed. The first members of the group were Mark Ashworth, Parish Councillor, David Botterill, Parish Councillor, Michael Payne who was appointed Chairman, Dr Debbie Pearson, Simon Plank, Dr Sarah Tolliday, Martin Tolliday, Sally Ward, Deborah Williams, Parish Councillor, Nigel Willis. The Steering Group would like to thank all members for the time and expertise that they gave to this process and an especial thank you to Chair Michael Payne who formed us in to a cohesive group and gave us a structure to work with.

While the Group has lost valued members, sadly, it has also gained several more. As well as Nigel Willis, chair, Sally Ward vice Chair, Dr Sarah Tolliday, Simon Plank, and Deborah Williams, Julie Murphy and John Gimblett are now the Parish Council representatives.

Mr Neil Pearce of Avon Planning Services is the Group's independent consultant on all technical matters relating to the Neighbourhood Plan.

Many of us complain about things that we don’t like and are frustrated and angry that we seem to have little control over our environment.

The Steering Group was sorry to lose the important contributions of Cathy Noon, Simon Plank and Dr Debbie Pearson during 2019. We thank them for their help.
