The feedback arising from the Pre-submission Consultation, where both parish residents and specified statutory bodies were consulted on the Plan, gave rise to some constructive suggestions that have, where appropriate, been incorporated into the Plan documents. On behalf of the Parish Council, the Steering Group submitted this the finalised* Neighbourhood Plan to the District Council [VWHDC] for examination on 9th October 2018.
* Subject to the examiner’s feedback
The finalised Plan documents can be accessed by clicking the respective links under ‘related pages’ to the left of this page as before. Also listed are the ‘Consultation Report’, summarising the methodology of the pre-submission consultation and the responses received, and the ‘Basic Conditions Statement’ setting out how the Plan meets the specified conditions, both of which are mandatory documents produced in support of the submission . Since then VWHDC has held the statutory ‘publicity period’ for the Plan that produced ten, mostly benign, comments albeit a few will require some additional work.
Subsequently the Independent Examiner was appointed and provided his feedback that was generally positive with only a few proposed changes, all of which were accepted by the Steering Group and incorporated in the finalised version of the Plan. This in turn was ‘signed-off’ by the District Council clearing the way for the all important referendum.
