Harbury and Deppers Bridge Neighbourhood Plan

Examiner's report

Following completion of the independent examination of the Harbury and Deppers Bridge Neighbourhood Development Plan, the examiner issued her report to the District Council on 30 July this year and this can be viewed below:

In accordance with paragraph 18 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), The Local Planning Authority must now consider what action to take in response to the recommendations of the Examiner and decide what modifications, if any, are to be made to the Plan in order for it to proceed to referendum.

Examiner's questions of clarification

The examiner asked for the Parish Council and Stratford-on-Avon District Council to respond to a number of questions in order to provide clarity and additional information to assist the examination.

Responses to these queries were supplied in June 2018. Associated documents are listed below.

Formal Submission consultation

Harbury Parish Council has formally submitted its Plan to Stratford-on-Avon District Council. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies to be used to help make decisions on planning applications falling within the neighbourhood area boundary.

In accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), the next stage is for us to hold a six-week consultation on the policies proposed in the Plan.

Consultation on the Submission Draft of the Harbury Neighbourhood Plan ran from 11 January to 5.00 pm on 22 February 2018. The consultation is now closed.

As examination on the Harbury and Deppers Bridge Neighbourhood Development Plan is due to commence soon and after the publication of this guidance, the examiner has given the Parish Council until the end of Friday 27 April to submit any comments on the above responses.
