Neighbourhood Plan

Following consideration by the council at the March Parish Council Meeting they have given their approval for the work done by the Neighbourhood plan working group. The Neighbourhood plan is now acknowledged as the Draft Neighbourhood Plan for the Parish of Ashover. This document, following the withdrawal of the NEDDC draft local plan, is now the only planning policy framework document in place for our parish. More »

Paragraph 216 of the National Planning Policy Framework sets out the weight that may be given to relevant policies in emerging plans in decision taking. Factors to consider include the stage of preparation of the plan and the extent to which there are unresolved objections to relevant policies. Whilst a referendum ensures that the community has the final say on whether the neighbourhood plan comes into force, decision makers should respect evidence of local support prior to the referendum when seeking to apply weight to an emerging neighbourhood plan. The consultation statement submitted with the draft neighbourhood plan should reveal the quality and effectiveness of the consultation that has informed the plan proposals.

This document has been produced following the public consultation with all households and the drop in events held in the Parish Hall and we thank all who contributed to these consultations. The next steps for the plan is for it to be submitted to NEDDC for their specific approval, it then goes off to a government Inspector who will scrutinize it, once that approval is obtained then the plan will be circulated to all the households in the parish. A referendum will then be held to hopefully gain the approval of the parishioners. It will then be considered fit for purpose and become the made document for the parish of Ashover. The responses from the stakeholders and parishioners are also attached here. » Less
