NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN – IMPORTANT
The proposed Neighbourhood Plan has now successfully completed its independent health check and has, consequently, been submitted to the planning authority, Kettering Borough Council, to formally consult upon.
The consultation has now been concluded and the Borough Council has appointed Ann Skippers, Dip Mgmt (Open) PGC (TLHE) (Open) MRTPI FRSA AoU as Independent Examiner; Ms Skippers will undertake the examination during January, which is the next step towards the Plan being subjected to referendum and adoption should this be desired by parishioners.
The examination of the Neighbourhood Plan and Neighbourhood Development Order is currently underway. The Examiner has provided an information note on the process that is being followed – see link below:
