In 2006 the Parish Council decided that it was sensible that there should be a Parish Plan for Henbury. In line with Government Policy a Steering Group and Chairman independent of the Parish Council was set up. Eventually the Parish Plan was completed and presented to the community. In May 2011 the Parish Council unanimously passed the following:
"The Parish Council endorses the Parish Plan as an expression of the community's aspirations, and acknowledges it as the framework for community action within the Parish."
