REGULATION 14 CONSULTATION CLOSED ON 31 OCTOBER 2019
Regulation 14 consultation, the first formal stage of consultation, opened 25th August 2019. It followed a launch of our first Rough Draft in February 2019 at a Parish Meeting attended by over 130 villagers, and a 6 week consultation period which closed in early April. We reviewed the plan following the consultation and made changes as a result of your input.
The Regulation 14 Plan, and supporting documents were posted on our website, and promoted via the Parish Magazine and Parish Noticeboards, an email to our subscribers, and in the Community Shop.
The statutory consultation period is 6 weeks, and consultation was due to close on 11th October. We extended the consultation until 31st October 2019 as the production of hard copies of the Plan was delayed. Hard copies of the Plan itself were made available in the Parish Office and via the Shop, and copies of the supporting documents were available for parishioners.
Here you can find and download all the material we published for reference. This is the Plan itself:
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time and effort to read the Plan and supporting documents and who has provided feedback. The Neighbourhood Plan team, alongside members of the Parish Council, review all the input from villagers, statutory bodies, and other stakeholders and make adjustments to the Plan as appropriate. An outline plan for the next stages, which will include further consultation, will be published shortly.
