Abram Neighbourhood Plan

Consultation on the redesignation of the Neighbourhood Forum

Abram Communities Together’s designation as a Neighbourhood Forum is due to expire on 6th August 2020. They are in the process of preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for Abram and have therefore applied to be redesignated for another 5 years to enable its completion and implementation.

The re-designation of the Neighbourhood Forum is currently out for consultation until 5pm on Monday 5th October.

In accordance with the Town and Country Planning Act (1990) and the Neighbourhood Planning regulations, the group has submitted the following application to the Council for redesignation:

The Neighbourhood Forum relates to the Abram Neighbourhood Area. If Abram Communities Together is redesignated as the Neighbourhood Forum, no other organisation or body may be designated for that neighbourhood area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.

Paper copies of the submitted documents can also be viewed at:

  • Platt Bridge Community Zone
  • Bickershaw Village Club
  • Abram Community Centre.

Please check with the venue before visiting to make sure it is open to visitors (given the current Covid-19 situation).
