We have now completed writing the first draft of our neighbourhood plan document. This is now being reviewed by our planning consultant (funded through Locality grant funding).
In parallel, we are preparing the required supporting documents which provide supplementary evidence and describe how we have gone about preparing our neighbourhood plan. These are required as part of the formal examination process which will be led by a planning inspector.
Once our neighbourhood plan document has been reviewed by our planning consultant (and any necessary amendments made) we will send the plan to Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) who will carry out a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) prior to commencement of the first formal consultation phase
There are a number of phases to the formal consultation process. We will provide further updates as we progress and as we narrow down the timescales.
