Latest on the Neighbourhood plan

 

Public consultation on the draft plan took place between 23 October and 3 December 2014 following which an independent examiner was appointed to review the plan. Subject to some modifications, the examiner has approved the plan which, once approval has been given by Cabinet, may now proceed to a referendum of residents living in the neighbourhood area. Cabinet is scheduled to receive a report on the plan and referendum on 27 July.

 

If approval is received by cabinet the referendum is likely to take place on the 10th September 2105.

 

 

WHAT IS THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN?

The Plan is a document which will help determine planning applications in parts of the council wards of Sudbury and Northwick Park. It has been drawn up over the past three years by local people and is a result of extensive consultation and engagement. You can see the Plan on this website

 

WHAT DOES THE PLAN DO?

It gives local residents a say in planning decisions and sets out policies which will be applied. It covers a large number of important local issues including housing, design, business, transport and green space. It also allows the local community to benefit via payments from the Community Infrastructure Levy.

 

WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW?

The Plan was recentlyapproved by an independent examiner  - and, subject to cabinet approval, is now at its final stage: the Referendum. All those living in the area covered by the Plan get a vote. Please vote YES to the Neighbourhood Plan on 10 September 2015 (provisional date).
