Northleach with Eastington Neighbourhood Plan

Northleach with Eastington Neighbourhood Plan

Northleach with Eastington Town Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the town and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally.  The Northleach with Eastington Plan is now with the independent examiner to see whether the plan should go to a referendum.  If a neighbourhood plan gets more than 50% of votes in its favour in the referendum, it will be legal and become part of the local development framework against which planning applications are assessed.

The Examination.

The examiner has prepared three formal notes, published below.

The second and third note above required responses from Northleach with Eastington Town Council and Cotswold District Council - as follows.

In the first note, the independent examiner noted that the final version of the Sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environmental Assessment had not been consulted upon, and that in order to comply with Regulation 13 of the Strategic Environmental Assessment Regulations, a consultation must be run.  This consultation ended on 6 December 2018.  The Sustainability Appraisal and the Habitats Regulation Assessment and representations on these are published below.

 

Northleach with Eastington NDP Consultation responses

The development of the Northleach with Easington neighbourhood plan

Northleach with Eastington Town Council (NETC) applied to this Council in November 2013 to designate a neighbourhood area. The area applied for, and subsequently approved, was the entirety of Northleach with Eastington Parish. Please view:

Since then, a steering group consisting of local residents, and supported by external expertise has consulted locally, reviewed and developed a local evidence base and prepared a pre-submission draft of the plan.  This plan was consulted on in early 2018 and representations have been considered in preparing a submission draft, which has recently been received by the Council.

This draft is now subject to six weeks' consultation, after which the plan, supporting documents and representations made will be considered by an independent.
