Congresbury Neighbourhood Development Plan

2. Vision for Congresbury

The vision for Congresbury:

  • Congresbury will continue to be a welcoming, vibrant, independent village set in a rural landscape with a conservation area at its heart.
  • The village will remain a place where small businesses can thrive and the residents can continue to benefit from a full range of quality services, amenities and facilities.
  • The community will embrace the aspirations of all its members and promote an environment where these aspirations can be realised.
  • All residents of our village will feel that they can fully participate in village life; that their wellbeing is seen to be important and feel a genuine sense of pride in where they live.
  • Congresbury will continue to be a safe and pleasant place to live, and will aspire to achieving a sustainable infrastructure that minimises its carbon footprint and maximises the opportunity for recycling.  The green spaces within the village will be made accessible and will be maintained for the benefit of all.
  • Any future developments should be appropriate to the existing character and needs of the village.
