Chetwynd Neighbourhood Plan Submission

Updated: 01/07/2022

Broxtowe Council Regulation 16 Consultation

The council has now commenced the statutory Regulation 16 Consultation for the Neighbourhood Plan which runs from 8th June until 5th August 2022 (the end date has been extended by two weeks from 22nd July). Full details and how to respond can be found using the link above.

Submissions can be made directly online or via downloadable forms. We encourage as many of our members and friends as possible to respond in support of the Neighbourhood Plan, as it provides the framework, policies, aspirations and guidelines that will shape the future of Toton and Chilwell up to 2040, and hopefully beyond.

The Neighbourhood Plan

It is supported by three other documents N.B. The two statements have been updated to reflect the Strategic Environmental Assessment process, and the supplementary plan modifications detail the changes made to the Plan in the October 2021 revision from the June 2020 version:

The steps towards Plan adoption have been and are:

  1. A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) (something required by Broxtowe Borough Council in February 2021) has been completed – see the Environmental Report below. Following the report recommendations, a revised Plan was submitted in November 2021;
  2. For Broxtowe Borough Council to run a statutory six week ‘Regulation 16’ consultation from 8th June to 22nd July 2022 – see above;
  3. An Independent Examiner has been appointed by Broxtowe.
    Following Regulation 16 consultation they will consider whether our Plan: 
  • has regard to national policy;
  • contributes to the achievement of sustainable development;
  • is in general conformity with the adopted strategic local policies for the local area;
  • is compatible with EU obligations;
  • meets human rights requirements.

As a result of this consultation and examination, the Plan may need to be further revised. After that, it will be submitted to the Local Community for Referendum. We had oiginally hoped that this would be in May/June 2021, but the SEA and the processes within Broxtowe have delayed this now until autumn 2022 at the earliest. We’ll be in contact to get your support when the time is right.

After that (assuming it passes the referendum) the Neighbourhood Plan will be “made” and will influence Planning Decisions by Broxtowe Borough Council for our Area.

See our Plan submission process Roadmap here. N.B. This is now out of date and awaiting an update from Broxtowe following the completion of the SEA process and commencement of the Regulation 16 Consultation.
