Latest on the Neighbourhood plan

 

On Monday, 27 July 2015 Brent Council's Cabinet approved for the Sudbury Town Neighbourhood Plan to progress to referendum. The referendum will take place on Thursday, 10 September 2015.

 

The plan has been produced by the Sudbury Town Residents' Association with involvement of the wider community. The neighbourhood plan’s overriding aim is “to create a greener, cleaner, safer Sudbury Town.” In summary, policies in the plan:

 

  • set design criteria for shop fronts in Sudbury town centre and for the continuation of public realm works

  • seeks to protect open spaces and allow the reuse or redevelopment of buildings within Butlers Green and Barham Park, for uses which support the function of the green space

  • sets priorities for spending Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy, including public realm improvements

  • identifies uses which will be appropriate in Sudbury town centre and support development that strengthens Vale Farm as a regional centre for sports excellence, whilst preserving open space.

 

Anyone living in the neighbourhood area who is registered to vote in a local election will be entitled to vote in the referendum. If the majority of those who vote in the referendum are in favour then the plan will be adopted as planning policy for Sudbury. The policies within the neighbourhood plan will then form part of Brent's Local Plan and will guide development in the neighbourhood area alongside other Development Plan policies.

 

If you have recently moved into the area or you are not currently registered to vote, you may complete an online application at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or ask the Electoral Services office (020 8937 1372) for a paper form. The deadline to register to vote in time for the referendum is midnight on Monday 24 August 2015.

 

Further information and a copy of the plan is available at www.brent.gov.uk/stnp and on the Sudbury Town Residents' Association webpage.    

 

If you live in the neighbourhood area, I hope you will take this important opportunity to have your say.

 

 

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).
