Plan to proceed to referendum

The Snitterfield Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) was independently examined during April and May 2017. The examiner concluded that the NDP would meet the legal requirements set out in the Localism Act 2011, including meeting the basic conditions, subject to some modifications.

Our Cabinet voted on 15 January 2018 to proceed to referendum with the NDP, as amended by the modifications that are set out in the decision statement below.


Following completion of the formal submission consultation on the draft neighbourhood development plan, the plan - together with the associated consultation documents (see below), the index of responses, and the schedule of responses - was sent to an independent examiner on 16 March 2017.

In accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), we held a consultation on the policies proposed in the Submission version of the Plan. The consultation started on 19 January 2017 and finished on 3 March 2017.
