As you may be aware, we had originally planned to commence our public consultation on the Draft Sutton Neighbourhood Plan at Easter, however, the coronavirus pandemic meant we could not safely consult at that point.
In the meantime, we have taken the opportunity to use some Locality (government) funded consultancy to review our plan and help us refine it.
Central Bedfordshire Council recently published its guidance on conducting public consultations during the pandemic, and with the government restrictions having been eased, we are now preparing (subject to Sutton Parish Council's formal approval) to commence public consultation in late August. The consultation will last a minimum of 6 weeks.
So, please watch this space! A consultation will be coming to you in late August!
As well as publicising the details on our web site and on the parish noticeboards, we'll also be delivering leaflets to all addresses in Sutton parish at the start of the consultation.
The documents will be available online on this website and we'll let you know how you can respond and give us your comments and feedback. Don't worry, we'll make specific arrangements for anyone who does not have internet access.
