Neighbourhood Plan Update July 2018

CHURCHDOWN & INNSWORTH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN.

At the end of 2017 the  draft  ‘Plan’ had been produced containing planning policies and a list of community actions – all based on information gathered during the Community Engagement in 2014 together with research by the Steering Group and reports from specialist consultants.

At the end of 2017 and start of 2018,  the Steering group were looking at ways to ensure that concerns regarding traffic/road infrastructure, flooding, design and layout of housing and fibre optic installation were  addressed as fully as possible. Final amendments , to incorporate the above policies and supporting evidence, were carried out in Spring 2018.

In June 2018, the Draft Neighbourhood Plan was approved by both Innsworth and Churchdown Parish Councils for submission to Tewkesbury Borough Council for Strategic Environmental Assessment. This process requires Tewkesbury Borough Council to liaise with a number of Statutory Organisations and is due to finish shortly.

The Steering Group are currently preparing for a 6 week statutory consultation on the Draft Plan which aims to collate as many responses from Residents as possible – this includes drafting a document detailing all the community engagement carried out to date and outlining how the Steering Group hope to achieve the widest possible consultation going forward.

We will be publishing details of how to respond to the consultation and dates of forthcoming events very shortly .
