The Independent Examination of the Plan is now COMPLETE
The independent examination of the Neighbourhood Plan was completed on 16th December 2019. The Examiner's report can be found here.
The Plan has now been passed back to N&SDC. They will update the Plan and propose it to the full N&S Council. The village
referendum was proposed to be undertaken in conjunction with local elections in May 2020 for the Police and Crime Commisioner. However due to the Covid 19 pandemic these have been postponed until 6th May 2021 at the earliest. The good news is however, that the Neighbourhood Plan can be given significant weight in decision-making in the planning process.
