Comment now on Northleach with Eastington Neighbourhood Plan!

Release date: 7 September 2018

Northleach with Eastington Town Council has submitted a Neighbourhood Development Plan to Cotswold District Council. The plan covers all of Northleach with Eastington Parish.  The Plan has now been published in the public domain and anyone wishing to comment must do so by 5 pm on 17 October.  Subsequently, the Plan will be examined independently to ensure that it meets the conditions laid out in the Localism Act and other relevant regulations.

Anyone can see the plan online on our CDC website, or review a hard copy at at the Northleach with Eastington Town Council Offices, Westwoods Centre, Bassett Road, Northleach, GL54 3QJ (Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 11am) or at Cotswold District Council’s office at Trinity Road, Cirencester (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm).   

Commenting on the Plan, Steering Group Chair, Chris Hancock says:

“Developing a Neighbourhood Plan in a small but important rural parish in the middle of the AONB is a challenging task in seeking to balance the need for development with the preservation of the environment and built heritage.  Four years of work have however produced a plan for consultation which we believe will deliver those things most needed  - provision for increased parking and improvements to the town centre, the expansion and improvement of educational facilities, a ‘green ring’ around the town and allocation of green space as well as a detailed Design Statement to assist in the future protection of our environment.”

Public comments will be taken into account by the independent examiner in determining whether the Plan meets the legal requirements.
