The Submission

Once the consultation comments have been analysed, and appropriate changes made to the draft Neighbourhood Plan (and to a Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment if required) we will submit the proposed Neighbourhood Plan to BCP Council. It will be accompanied by:

  • A plan or statement showing the area covered the Neighbourhood Plan.
  • A written statement explaining how the Neighbourhood Plan meets relevant legal requirements.
  • A ‘Consultation Statement’ that contains details of who was consulted on the draft Neighbourhood Plan, how they were consulted, the main issues and concerns raised, and how these have been addressed in the Neighbourhood Plan.

The Parish Council ‘signed-off’ the Neighbourhood Plan at it’s monthly meeting on 26th May 2021. The ‘Plan’ was submitted to BCP Council on 9th June 2021 and in due course it will be Examined by an Independent Assessor and thereafter, subject to any further amendments, will be subject to a residents Referendum living in the Parish area before it can be completed as a ‘Made Plan’.
