Neighbourhood Plan Update

ON FRIDAY, 31 AUGUST 2018, the Parish Council, as the qualifying body, submitted the Plaistow and Ifold Parish – Neighbourhood Plan to the local planning authority, Chichester District Council (CDC), as part of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 – Regulation 15.

The documents related to the submission are available for public viewing on the Neighbourhood Plan website: www.plaistowandifoldparishnp.com/reg15

When a draft Neighbourhood Plan or Order is submitted to a local planning authority the authority is considering the draft plan or order against the statutory requirements set out in paragraph 6 of Schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended). A local planning authority has to be satisfied that a basic condition statement has been submitted but it is not required to consider whether the draft plan or order meets the basic conditions. It is only after the independent examination has taken place and after the examiner’s report has been received that the local planning authority comes to its formal view on whether the draft neighbourhood plan or Order meets the basic conditions. The local planning authority should provide constructive comments on an emerging plan or Order before it is submitted.

Due to staff shortages, Chichester District Council have advised Plaistow and Ifold Parish Council that they are unable to proceed to Regulation 16 until further notice.
