By Badby 4 Badby
A parish that retains, enhances and protects its unique character in a managed and sustainable way, meeting the present and future needs and wishes of all ages who live and work in it.
A neighbourhood plan is:
- a document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area. Planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
- written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
- a powerful tool to ensure that the commnuity gets the right types of development, in the right place.
- an important document with real legal force, therefore there are certain formal procedures that it must go through.
A group of local parishioners have agreed to write a plan for the benefit of the community and all the parishioners will be consulted and views sought at all stages of the plan. The group is encouraged by Badby Parish Council and progress is monitored and reported on at monthly Badby Parish Council meetings.
The Parish consultation on the Badby Parish Draft Neighbourhood Plan was held on the 26th October to 8th December 2017, the responses are now being considered by the BPNP team and they will be amending the draft plan where appropriate in light of the submissions made. The proposed plan will then be submitted to Daventry District Council along with a Consultation Statement.
Daventry District Council will consult on the plan and it will be examined by an independant examiner before it is finalised. There will then be a referendum within the parish as to whether to accept the plan. It is planned that the referendum on the plan will take place in late 2018.
Next meetings of the group:
Wednesday 24th Janunary 2018, 7:30 Maltsters
Wednesday 7th March 2018, 7:30 Maltsters
All parishioners welcome to attend and there will be 2 public participation slots.
