Neighbourhood Plan - Welcome
Neighbourhood Plan Update
In March 2016 the Parish Council resolved to promote a Neighbourhood Plan. This is a statutory document which will influence planning decisions in the Parish in respect of matters such as housing, the environment, conservation and flood prevention. The Parish Council duly established an Advisory Group which carried out various public consultation exercises early in 2017, including a very successful public meeting in March.
Using the information gathered from the public consultation the Advisory Group has composed the first draft of the Neighbourhood Plan for further consultation. A copy of the consultation draft is available on this website while paper versions will be delivered to all households and lodged in the village shop in late December. All residents are asked to read the consultation draft and return the accompanying questionnaire which can be completed on paper or on line on this website. There will then be another public meeting in the Memorial Hall at 7pm on 23 February 2018.
The consultation draft will be modified in the light of the feedback from the latest consultation and formally submitted to Erewash Borough Council which will appoint an independent examiner. The final stage in the adoption will be a referendum of all residents. It is hoped that this can all be completed during 2018.
THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN WILL AFFECT EVERYONE AND IS NOW AT A CRITICAL STAGE. PLEASE RETURN THE QUESTIONNAIRE BY 26 JANUARY AND COME TO THE PUBLIC MEETING ON 23 FEBRUARY.
