The Parish Council is urging Bembridge residents, businesses and community groups to engage with the Isle of Wight Council’s Island Planning Strategy (IPS) consultation. If and when adopted, the IPS will be the local planning policy for the Isle of Wight and will be used to shape the island’s planning and development over the next 15-years. It is very important that local residents and businesses comment on the proposals. To view the draft plan under consultation, and related documents, please visit www.iow.gov.uk/islandplanningstrategy. This is an opportunity for you to have a say in how the island will develop for future generations. The consultation deadline is midday on Monday, 28th January 2019.
