Shobnall Neighbourhood Plan
Regulation 14 (draft plan) consultation
Shobnall Parish Council have drafted their Neighbourhood Plan and are now asking businesses and residents in the Parish for their thoughts on the document. The consultation period runs from 15th February until 28th March 2016 and all comments should be forwarded to the Neighbourhood Planning group: http://branstonmedia.x10.mx/branstonmedia/shobpc/local%20plan/shobnall_neighbourhood_plan.htm
Shobnall Parish Council’s application to the Borough Council for the Parish to be designated as a neighbourhood area was approved on 12th March 2015 following a 6 week consultation period. This now paves the way for Shobnall to begin preparing their Neighbourhood Plan in earnest.
Why the need to ‘designate’ the Parish as a Neighbourhood Area?
The Regulations governing the preparation of NPs state that all letters received for designation need to be advertised, so that the intention to prepare an NP is brought to the attention of local residents, employees and businesses. In addition, anyone can comment on this intention, during a six week period that was held between Wednesday 28th January to Wednesday 11th March 2015.
Shobnall Parish was designated a neighbourhood area for the purposes of preparing a neighbourhood plan on 12th March 2015.
