Next Stages

Following the consultation, all comments received will be provided to the examiner to consider as part of the examination process. If the draft Plan is approved by the examiner the next stage is to put the plan, incorporating the examiners’ recommendations, to a public referendum. If accepted then the draft Neighbourhood Plan must be made by the Council within an 8 week period following the referendum.

Once made the Neighbourhood Plan will form part of the district wide planning framework and become a material consideration (must be taken into account) in the consideration of future planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area.

Further information and dates will be published as they become available.
