Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Notice


Many thanks to all those who attended the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group meeting in the Parish Hall on Tuesday, 19 September to hear the outcome of last year’s Regulation 14 Consultation, find out how our Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been amended as a result, and learn about the way forward in getting the Plan adopted.

In case you were not able to be at the Meeting, the latest situation is that on 4 September the Parish Council approved the draft Plan and one of its key supporting documents, the draft Consultation Statement, for submission to Herefordshire Council for the next stage in the adoption process, the Regulation 16 Consultation. This approval was, however, subject to any changes to these documents which may still be required (see below).

Everybody on the NDP e-mail list has received copies of the two documents, but for technical reasons I have not yet been able to post them on the Parish Website. If you are not on the list and would like to see them, please e-mail your request to me at babsmitcheson@aol.com and also let me know whether or not you would like to have your name added to the list.

In advance of our formal Regulation 16 submission to Herefordshire Council, the draft Plan and Consultation Statement have been sent to the Council so that they can update two other important documents, the Habitat Regulations Assessment and the Strategic Environmental Assessment. These have to be submitted at the same time as our NDP and the updates may result in some changes having to be made to the Plan. Being given a preview of our draft Plan also gives Herefordshire Council the opportunity to update their master planning maps with information contained in our maps, such as our proposed settlement boundaries, and to convert our maps into the correct standard format required in all Herefordshire NDPs.

With all this work still to be done, the formal submission of our draft Plan is now likely to be made in the second half of October. It will then be in the hands of Herefordshire Council to take the Plan forward, and so we cannot yet predict when the six week Regulation 16 Consultation will actually take place. Watch this space!
