Buckland Brewer created a 10-year Parish Plan in 2008. It set out how the Council at the time felt the parish should develop over that period, and what parishioners might like to see unchanged. The plan was intended to help the parish have influence over changes that might be imposed from outside so that it could help to shape its own destiny. In the words of David Lloyd, the Chairman of the Parish Council that approved the plan, "by the life of the village can be sustained and the community which we currently enjoy being part of can be maintained, the Parish Plan will provide a strategy for use in deciding which projects are possible, whether or not they are desirable and if so, how they might be achieved."

The Parish Plan is too big to add as a document on this website but the Parish Clerk will be pleased to send you a copy by email on request. 

The Plan is now being reviewed. It has been, in part, superceded by the Settlement Plan, Buckland Brewer's contribution to the Torridge and North Devon Local Plan, but the Parish Council wants to see this incorporated into a document with wider scope that will look at the Parish's needs until 2031 (to coincide with the Local Plan).

The first Public Meeting to talk about the new plan was held on 31st January 2018. The Parish Council is very keen to see the development of this document led and delivered by the local community. A Steering Group has been appointed and is now meeting regularly. It comprises 7 members of the public and 3 parish councillors: Parishioners – David Heywood, John Hector (Chair), Barry Noakes, Jo Lloyd, Alan Sutton (Publicity Officer), Jo Miles, Steve Harding (Secretary and Treasurer); Parish Councillors Barbara Babb, Andrew Hewitt, David Watson.
