Here at last – the draft Neighbourhood Plan for you to view and provide your comments!
The draft Plan and its appendices were agreed by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group in February and endorsed, with some amendments, by the Parish Council at their meeting in March.
The next step is public consultation on the draft Plan.
This is a mandatory element of Central Government’s Neighbourhood Plan process, referred to as Regulation 14. This involves ensuring that businesses, organisations and landowners in the parish, together with more than 20 public bodies, and of course all of our residents, have the opportunity to view the documents and provide their comments.
Consultation starts on Monday 10 May and lasts for 8 weeks.
The draft Plan and appendices will be available to read on the Documents page of the www.lfcnp.co.uk from 10 May. A form for comments will also be available on that website – simply place your cursor over Documents heading and the Feedback Form page can be selected. Two virtual Question and Answer sessions will be arranged during the consultation period with dates and times published on this website and on www.lfcnp.co.uk If you know anyone without internet access who needs a paper copy of the Plan they should call 01722 411847.
A final version of the draft Neighbourhood Plan will be produced in the light of comments received.
At the end of the consultation period all comments received will be reviewed and appropriate changes discussed with the Parish Council. A final version of the Plan and appendices will then be prepared and sent to Wiltshire Council for its approval. Once approved, the documents will go forward to an independent inspector and when he or she is content a referendum on the Plan will be held in the parish. Providing there is a simple majority in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan, it will be adopted by Wiltshire Council and must then be considered in any planning decision which affects the parish.
