Neighbourhood Plan Update

Further to our last update over the festive period following receipt of the Examiner’s letter and annex after the public hearing held in November (see the Plan page), this is to provide you with some further information as to where we are.

Steering Group members have been through the Neighbourhood Plan (NP) policy section with our Locality appointed consultant initially, and then with the Broxtowe planning team, to review the modifications recommended by the Examiner. This has involved quite a number of sessions, and has taken some considerable time, but we are getting there! So far, we have more or less finalised five of the policy chapters with two more to complete.

Overall, with our consultant’s input, and in agreement with Broxtowe’s planning team, we believe the wording has been strengthened and any ambiguity removed (in line with the suggested modifications), and therefore the policy section is much stronger & improved – pending the Examiner’s approval!

Our aim, together with Broxtowe, is to finalise all the policy wording next week and forward to the Examiner for her approval by the deadline next Friday 3rd February.

We are hopeful that the Examiner will be prepared to grant an extension, based on the amount of work that has gone into the policies section, for us to complete the remaining modifications she has suggested for the rest of the NP document, as we believe we have broken the back of it now.

We will let you know the next steps once we have received further feedback from the Examiner in due course.

Finally …….

The draft minutes & recording from the recent AGM will be added to the website as soon as we can, but as we’re sure you will understand, our focus has been elsewhere this month! However, we will let you know as soon as they have been uploaded.

As always please do feel free to ask any questions you may have on this or anything else via the Contact Us page, and we’ll do our best to answer them via the Questions and Answers page.
