The purpose of The Village Plan is to represent a wide cross-section of views as to how we all would like Blagdon to be in the future. It is a document which outlines how we as a community see it developing in the future; include existing problems and possible solutions. This Village Plan forms the basis of an application to the relevant government department for funding for specific community projects.
Village plans are part of the “Vital Villages” programme run by The Countryside Agency. Funding for the creation of The Village Plan comes from this source. We were given £3,000 to use with which to fund the creation of the working document.
