The Neighbourhood Plan intends to influence the future for the
better by the concerted actions of many agencies and
organisations and to do so in harmony with the wider community
in West Bergholt. This will have an impact on West Bergholt as a
place and will similarly affect its community as individuals,
families and groups of citizens. This is reflected in a vision
statement which was tested out during consultation periods, with
the majority of those providing feedback feeling it was
appropriate for a plan lasting many years.
The West Bergholt Vision Statement:
"By 2033 West Bergholt will be a prosperous community which
has taken control of its destiny through local decision-making;
which has achieved a sustainable mix of development; and where
the combination of the built and natural environment provides an
attractive location for residents, businesses and visitors
Our community, its residents, clubs, societies, organisations,
businesses and individuals aspire for an ever-improved quality
of life. These aspirations are many and varied. We have grouped
the main aspects under the overarching aims, set out below:

interact and take part in a wide range of activities and
improve communication between and across community groups.
Caring for our environment:

the enjoyment of future generations and to explore
opportunities to create new areas of accessible open space.

local groups especially in the areas of sport and recreation,
