We have now received all of your responses to the Statutory Consultation – the Steering Group are meeting on 7th February 2019 to review all responses received in order to see if any further amendments/improvements to the Plan are necessary. The Plan will then be formally submitted to Tewkesbury Borough Council who will publicise the plan ( Regulation 16 ) and arrange for an examination by an Independent Examiner. This is to consider whether the neighbourhood plan meets the basic conditions and other legal requirements. If successful at the examination stage, with modifications if necessary, then the local authority will arrange for a neighbourhood plan referendum. If there is a majority yes vote, then the neighbourhood plan is made and becomes part of the statutory development plan for the area.
Thank you so much to all those who took part in our consultation : we value your ideas on how to shape the development of our community , now and in the future.
