Who is preparing the plan?:
A working group set up by Ilminster Town Council is leading
the Neighbourhood Plan. The group are being advised
by ECA. ECA are a Planning, Architecture and Community
Consultancy (Community Interest Company) who have
prepared a number of neighbourhood plans in the west of
England. They come with a wealth of experience and are
able to provide high quality impartial planning and urban
design advice. They will provide on-going technical support
and promise to make our vision for Ilminster real through the
producing robust neighbourhood planning policies. But this
is your plan and we invite all residents to share there ideas
and views with us. We intend to have a draft neighbourhood
plan by the end of 2019 with adoption planned for some time
in 2020.
ECA won a Planning Award for their work on the Poole Quays
Neighbourhood Plan in 2017 and also led the Boscombe
and Pokesdown Neighbourhood Plan (BAP NP) which has
a population of 22,000. Their consultation on the BAP NP
included setting up a pop-up shop and all sorts of fun-days
with young and older people. Come and meet the ECA team
led by Martha Covell and Antonia Morgan at our event on 16th
March, which promises to be informal, fun and meaningful!
