Parish Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group continues to complete the work necessary to get the plan ready for the formal inspection by an independent examiner. The group now have appointed a consultant to help them draw together all the elements so that the document can be presented in the most appropriate form. The cost of this comes from central government funds.

If the Draft Neighbourhood Plan comes through the inspection without needing any changes then the date of the village Referendum should be around Easter 2018. This gives residents an opportunity to vote and accept or reject the Plan. If accepted by a simple majority of those voting then the Plan becomes part of the formal planning process and must be considered when any planning decisions are taken.
Getting to this stage has meant a huge amount of work for the volunteers involved. The following quote from the report given to the Parish Council on Monday (March 27th) indicates just how hard this process has been and shows the level of detail and expertise that has had to be mastered:

"Since work began on the Neighbourhood Plan the Steering Group has had to deal with a level of complexity it had never envisaged. In June 2016 consultants employed by Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) identified a potential gypsy and traveller site on land at Tarporley Road. .....................No decision has been made and it is unlikely that any will be made before the end of 2017. The Plan takes no view on the proposal, although it notes the clear public view. However, it notes that development proposals for gypsy and traveller sites will respect the policy and guidance contained in the NPPF (DCLG, March 2012), NPPG (DCLG, online), 'Planning Policy for Traveller Sites' (DCLG, August 2015), CWaC Local Plan (Part 1) Policy SOC4 (January 2015) and CWaC Local Plan (Part 2) Policy DM19 (Autumn 2016)"

The concept of the Neighbourhood Plans was to encourage local people to get involved. What was perhaps not envisaged at the start was that volunteers would have to become unpaid town planners. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group deserve the thanks of the village for all their hard work.
