The Blackrod Neighbourhood Plan is a strategically important legal document which will set out the vision and objectives of the community for the next 15 years. Covering Housing development, Infrastructure, Environment, Heritage & other areas determined by the residents & broader Blackrod community.

We need to know what you think of Blackrod as it is today and what you would like to see change.

This is a REAL opportunity to influence the place we all live and work. THIS PLAN WILL NOT SUCCEED WITHOUT YOUR INVOLVEMENT.
