Bradley area action plan

Pendle Borough Council has prepared an Area Action Plan (AAP) for the Bradley Priority Area of Nelson. The Bradley AAP is a Development Plan Document (DPD) and will form part of Pendle's new Local Plan.

Following the successful examination of the Bradley AAP by a Planning Inspector, the document was formally adopted by Pendle Council on 30th June 2011. The adopted Bradley AAP and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal, along with the Inspector's Final report and the Council's Adoption Statement can be found below:

Hard copies of these documents are also available to view at Number One Market Street , Nelson and in Nelson Library. 

Why does Bradley need an AAP?

Pendle Council have prepared the Bradley Area Action Plan because a large part of this inner urban ward close to Nelson town centre was identified as a priority area for regeneration and investment under the Government's Housing Market Renewal (HMR) Programme. The role of the AAP is to support the regeneration of the area.

The AAP sets out the vision and objectives for regenerating Bradley and a strategy for how this will be done. AAPs are spatial plans which bring together policies for the development and use of land along with policies and plans that influence the nature of a place and how it functions. The Bradley AAP considers other relevant strategies and programmes and provides a framework for how the regeneration of the area will be proactively delivered and co-ordinated by the public and private sector working in partnership.
