Neighbourhood Plan – UPDATE

 

 

It’s been a while since our last update, but as I am sure you have guessed we have been busy working behind the scenes. We have secured a grant from Locality (the Government appointed organisation offering Neighbourhood Planning support to communities) and this has meant that both a Heritage and Character Assessment, and a Design Guidance document are currently being prepared on the parish as supporting evidence for our Plan. For full details as to what these documents bring to our Neighbourhood Plan, visit our website.

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN: QUESTIONNAIRE DELIVERY WEEKEND 15th – 17th June

Over the past 8 months, we have completed some high level consultation which has provided a steer as to what’s important to you as residents. A more formal questionnaire will be delivered to each household over the weekend of 15th – 17th June, and this is your opportunity to HAVE YOUR SAY and to shape our future. Full details will be included in your questionnaire pack.

EFDC LOCAL PLAN: JUDICIAL REVIEW 23rd – 24th May

Submission of Epping Forest District Council’s Local Plan has been delayed following a Planning Court ruling on 20 March 2018. The Court granted CK Properties Theydon Bois Limited permission to apply for judicial review of the Council’s decision on 14 December 2017 to approve the Local Plan Submission Version 2017 for publication and submission to the Secretary of State for independent examination. This decision does not delay the Neighbourhood Plan, and we are therefore forging ahead! For further details on the EFDC Local Plan visit www.eppingforestdc.gov.uk
