Regulation 16 Consultation
Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Winshill Parish Council has submitted its draft Neighbourhood Development Plan (Neighbourhood Plan) to East Staffordshire Borough Council. In accordance with Regulation 16, the Borough Council would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on the submitted Neighbourhood Plan. The consultation period ran from Friday 16th June to Friday 28th July 2017 at 5pm.
The Neighbourhood Plan, written by a group made up of members from the community and from Winshill Parish Council, proposes a number of policies on heritage, the town centre and Local green Spaces, amongst others.
The Neighbourhood Development Plan submission is split into three main documents:
- Winshill Neighbourhood Development Plan
- Basic Conditions Statement (including SEA and Compatibility with EU regulations) and Screening Opinion
- Consultation Statement
It is the responsibility of the Borough Council to collate all the representations and pass them on to an independent examiner, who will look at them and the Plan documents when assessing whether the plan meets the legislation and can therefore proceed to referendum.
Hard copies of the plan can be found at:
- Customer service Centre, Burton Market Place
- Burton Library
- Winshill Neighbourhood Resource Centre, Canterbury Road
Or sending it by post to: Neighbourhood Planning, Planning Policy, East Staffordshire Borough Council, PO Box 8045, Burton upon Trent, DE14 9LG
If you wish to be notified of the Council’s decision on the plan proposal then please state this in your representation.
