Consultation description

Comments are welcome on the content of the draft plan and should focus on whether or not the plan proposal fulfils the basic conditions. These are the tests that the examiner has to apply before the Plan can move to the next stage (public referendum).

The deadline for comments is Monday 9 May 2022.

When commenting, you can ask to be told of the decision on whether the Plan is approved for use. Please use the appropriate place on the consultation response form to let us know.

Next stages

After the consultation, all comments received will be given to the examiner to consider as part of the examination process. If the examiner approves the draft Plan, the next stage is to put the Plan, along with the examiner's recommendations, to a public referendum. If accepted, the Council must make the draft Neighbourhood Plan within eight weeks after the referendum.

Once the Neighbourhood Plan is made, it will form part of the district-wide planning framework. It will become a material consideration (meaning it must be taken into account) for future planning applications in the Blakeney Neighbourhood area.
