The members of the Bromham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are all volunteers who are resident in Bromham Parish. We have put in many hours in trying to understand and follow the process to create a Neighbourhood Plan, motivated by the thought that such a plan will help to ensure that Bromham remains a vibrant community in the coming years.
Parish Council Representative
Bromham based farmer and member of the Bromham Parish Council.
Silly photo but we all need cheering up in 2020.
I joined the steering group to give something back to Bromham after living here for 40 years.
Primarily, I would like to help see some sustainable housing that is appropriate for young people and families who have grown up here and want to continue to live in and add to the life of the village
I have lived in Bromham for eighteen years. I joined the steering group because I wanted Bromham to remain a thriving village community with a wide age range of population. Our daughters could not afford to remain in the village and I passionately believe we need a vibrant younger population to ensure the village thrives and remains the close knit community that we all enjoy living in. I don’t bring any specialist knowledge of planning or building, just a desire to retain the village feel of Bromham.
Steering Group Chair
I love our community here in Bromham, but if our children have to move away, who are we making it special for? So I joined the steering group because I want all our young people in the village to have the opportunity that I have had, of being able to share in this special place we call home, that they were brought up in, and to have homes available so that they can afford to continue to live in their community.
My name is Bryn, 24, I moved to the village with my parents when I was 3 and have grown up in the village going through pre-school and primary school. I joined the steering group to help give a young person’s perspective of life in the village. I am keen to help preserve and enhance our community facilities to ensure that there is a wide variety of facilities available for all ages.
I moved to the village in early 2018 and wanted to contribute something to the community in my new home, so joined the steering group soon after I arrived. My focus is to preserve the character of our beautiful village, while enabling people to get on the housing ladder and remain in the village. I am also passionate about retaining all our local public rights of way and minimising the environmental impact of any future development.
Steering Group Secretary
I moved to Bromham in 2017 when my wife Ruth became the Rector here. Immediately prior to this I completed an MSc in “Renewable Energy and the Built Environment” so I have a passion for reducing the energy use in homes. I offered to join the steering group as a way of meeting people outside of the usual Church congregation and took on the role of secretary, as with my limited knowledge of the parish that seemed to be where I could contribute the most.
Serving on the Bromham Parish Council as well as the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.
