Alvington neighbourhood plan
The Examiner's Report on the Alvington Neighbourhood Development Plan was received on 17th April 2020. The independent examiner’s report concluded that, subject to making the modifications recommended, the plan met the basic conditions set out in the legislation and should proceed to a neighbourhood planning referendum. The Examiner's Report and Neighbourhood Plan will be presented to the next Cabinet meeting for their consideration.
Publication of the neighbourhood plan
Alvington Parish Council submitted their neighbourhood development plan to the Council on 18 September 2019. We held a public consultation from 23 October to Wednesday 4 December 2019 during which we invited comments on the plan and its supporting documents.
The examiner carried out an unaccompanied site visit to the Neighbourhood Plan Area. Following this visit, plus his initial reading of the plan and representations received, the examiner forwarded a clarification note. The note sets out the examiners initial comments on the submitted plan. It also sets out areas where it would be helpful to have some further clarification.
Publication of New Policy NE3 Important Open Areas (IOA) and Local Green Spaces (LGS)
During the examination of the Alvington NDP the Examiner requested further clarification on a number of matters within the NDP. The clarification note requested further information regarding the policy approach to the designation of local green spaces. Alvington Parish Council have considered the comments and have submitted a revised policy NE3: Important open areas (IOA) and Local Green Spaces LGS. It is the new policy NE3 and the accompanying text only that is the subject of a revised consultation. The consultation ran for four weeks from 19 February 2020 to Wednesday 18 March 2020.
