   Neighbourhood Plan - Progress    February 11, 2018

 The Local Development Framework Group at TDBC passed the following on 6 February 2018.

“In accordance with legal requirements, the West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine Neighbourhood Development Plan (WM&CF NDP) was recently submitted for Independent Examination. Ann Skippers as Independent Examiner has now submitted to the Council her report. It concludes that:-

• The West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine Parish Councils are qualifying bodies;

• The WM&CF NDP relates to the WM&CF Neighbourhood Plan Area;

• The date for the WM&CF NDP is clearly indicated;

• The WM&CF NDP does not include excluded development;

• The WM&CF NDP policies, subject to recommendations, relate to the development and use of land;

• The WM&CF NDP is compatible with EU Obligations;

·         The WM&CF NDP, subject to recommendations, meets all the Basic Conditions;

and that, on this basis the WM&CF NDP can progress to referendum and the referendum area should not extend beyond the Neighbourhood Plan Area to which the Plan relates.

Executive Councillor Roger Habgood has noted the Examiner’s report and has agreed that the required referendum should be held.”
