Information & research

By following the links below you can find summaries of the most up to date information that has been gathered by the Neighbourhood Planning Group.  It is essential that Neighbourhood Plans are based on robust information and analysis of the local area; this is called the evidence base.   The views of the community, gathered through community consultation exercises, will also form a part of the evidence base and as the preparation of the Plan progresses, it may also be necessary to gather more detailed information on some topics.

The Study Area used for most of the information gathered is the parish of Axbridge.  The parish has been approved by Sedgemoor District Council as a Neighbourhood Area for the purposes of Neighbourhood Planning.  Further details, including a map showing the parish boundary, are on Sedgemoor’s website at

If you have any comments or suggestions for additional information that could be useful for informing the plan, please email us.
