To the Neighbourhood Plan
Read on to see how the plan is developing
The Neighbourhood Plan is proceeding well and following much public consultation in 2012 the policies in the plan are being considered in detail. In the coming months these will be finalised and in December a draft document will be subject to further consultation. Once the views expressed are taken into account the document will be ready to be submitted for an independent examiner to review the document in February 2014. Once the examiner’s views are known and taken into account the Plan will be put to a referendum of all residents in May 2014. If a majority of votes are in favour then the Plan is adopted as planning policy for the area.

An application for 184 homes at Winsford in Cheshire has been rejected by the local council on the grounds that it conflicts with an emerging neighbourhood plan.
An application for 100 homes in an East Staffordshire village has been refused by the local council over fears that, if approved, the local community would abandon the area’s neighbourhood plan, which is due to go to a referendum.
