How to have a say on Local Plan for East Northamptonshire
People can have their say on a draft Local Plan for East Northamptonshire.
The document sets out planning policies and helps to shape new housing and infrastructure.
The six-week consultation starts today (Friday, February 5) and the documents are available here or call 01832 742140.
Coun Steven North, leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said: “There have been many consultations on the Local Plan since we started preparing it in January 2017, and this is the final stage where stakeholders can comment on the soundness of the plan.
“We encourage those who do respond to clearly state why they feel the plan may not be legally compliant, meet the assessed needs, be an appropriate and deliverable strategy or be consistent with national policy. These are the key areas that the inspector will consider.”
Once the Regulation 19 consultation ends, responses will be compiled with the Local Plan and its supporting documentation before being submitted for independent examination by the Planning Inspectorate. If the plan is found to be sound, it will be presented to North Northamptonshire Council for adoption.
