A referendum on this plan will take place on 21 March 2019, where residents of Northleach with Eastington parish will be asked the question: 

Do you want Cotswold District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Northleach with Eastington to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

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.

Following formal submission, the plan was subjected to further consultation, and subsequently an examination carried out by a independent examiner, Mr John Mattocks.  On 18 January, he submitted his report, recommending that, subject to modifications, the Plan proceeds to referendum.  On 31 January, the district council formally accepted this recommendation.
