Following the consultation on the Draft Sutton Neighbourhood Plan which took place from August to October 2020, the Steering Committee has reviewed all of the feedback and made appropriate amendments to the Plan.
The revised Plan, the submission version, was approved by Sutton Parish Council on Monday 11th January 2021 and has now been submitted to Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) in accordance with the Regulations.
CBC will now undertake further consultation on the submitted plan (in line with the Regulations). This consultation will be led by CBC and is expected to begin in the next two weeks. The consultation will last at least six weeks. All of the comments from this consultation will then be passed to the appointed examiner who will examine the plan to ensure that it meets the conditions required.
Provided the plan passes examination (with or without modifications), the plan will then be put to a referendum of electors within Sutton parish. Depending upon the findings of the examination and the coronavirus restrictions, we anticipate the referendum will be held in late spring or early summer.
