Freshford and Limpley Stoke Draft Neighbourhood Plan - Public Consultation

posted 29 Jun 2013, 01:20 by Parish Council Communications
The Draft Neighbourhood Plan has evolved considerably since our initial discussions back at the beginning of last year.  A great deal of work, investigation and discussion has gone into the process and we can be proud of the resulting document which reflects the wishes of residents while conforming to wider planning regulations.  

We are now reaching an important stage in the process.

The Plan at this stage is still only a draft.  It will be published on 1st July for a 6-week community consultation.  Further comments will be welcome and will be carefully considered by the Management Group, which of course comprises representatives of both Parish Councils, before being submitted to the Lead Councils - B&NES and Wiltshire - for Formal Validation.  After that, there is a period of Formal Consultation by the Lead Councils, followed by the external Examination.  Finally, we hope to bring the Neighbourhood Plan to the community for a Referendum before the end of this year (though the actual date does rather depend on matters outside our control). 

In the meantime we attach the Formal Notice concerning this consultation.  We'll be emailing further information in the next few days - how you can view the Draft Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents, both online and as hard copy; where you can come to discuss the Draft Plan and how to submit any further comments you may have.
