A Neighbourhood Plan is a mechanism that local communities can use to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. It can be used to develop a shared vision for a neighbourhood, choose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built, identify and protect important local green spaces and to influence what new buildings should look like.
Submission of the draft plan represents the final stage of preparation before the document is considered by an independent examiner and put to public referendum. Prior to this NNDC is running a six week consultation on the draft plan, supporting documents and evidence base, commencing Monday 25 June and ending Monday 6 August 2018. The documents will be available to view during normal opening hours at:
- NNDC Offices, Holt Road, Cromer
- NNDC Offices, Fakenham Connect, Oak Street, Fakenham
- Corpusty Gallery, The Street (Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, Sunday noon to 5pm)
- Online at: north-norfolk.gov.uk/corpustynp
Comments are invited on the content of the draft plan and in particular may wish to address whether or not the proposed plan fulfils the “basic conditions” - these are the tests that the Inspector is required to undertake. Details of this and further guidance can be found on the Governments Neighbourhood Planning Guidance web page: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/neighbourhood-planning--2.
Those wishing to comment should complete the representations form available at www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/corpustynp and submit their response by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Planning Policy Team, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Road, Cromer, Norfolk, NR27 9EN by no later than 5pm Monday 6 August.
All comments received will be provided to the examining inspector following the close of the consultation. Any person making a representation at this stage may request to be notified of the Council’s decision under Regulation 19 (to approve the Plan for use). Those wishing to be notified can indicate this in the appropriate place on the representations form.
