Regulation 16 Consultation

“The Neighbourhood Plan has now gone through its first public consultation (thanks to all who responded), some changes have been made to the policies and we are now looking forward to the second (and final) consultation.  This will be run by Tewkesbury Borough Council, who will put it on their website with an online form for comments.  Further changes will then be made and the Plan will then go for Independent Examination, before the Referendum.

Watch out for the start of the second (Regulation 16) consultation and make sure you have your say”.

Statutory Consultation – Reg 14

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

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.
