January 2023: Neighbourhood area application

We have received an application from the Bradwell, May Bank, Porthill & Wolstanton Neighbourhood Forum Group to designate a Bradwell, May Bank, Porthill & Wolstanton Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Area in accordance with the provisions set out in the Localism Act 2011.

If successfully designated, a Forum can develop a Neighbourhood Plan for their area.
