Overstone Neighbourhood Development Plan 2019-2029
Overstone Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group have now submitted their final version of the Overstone Neighbourhood Plan. As the local planning authority we are now required to undertake a consultation to provide an opportunity for all parties to comment on whether the submitted plan meets the basic conditions before it goes to examination. The basic conditions are that the plan:
- Must be appropriate having regard to National Policy
- Must contribute to the achievement of sustainable development
- Must be in general conformity with the strategic policies in the development plan for the local area
- Must be compatible with human rights requirements
- Must be compatible with EU obligations
Please note that the current version of the plan is the version that will be submitted for examination. The consultation commences on 1 February 2021 and will close at 5pm on 22 March 2021. The statutory consultation period is 6 weeks, however, this has been extended to 7 weeks.
What is the Overstone Neighbourhood Plan?
The Overstone Neighbourhood Development Plan is the emerging development plan for the Overstone Neighbourhood Area for the period 2019 to 2029. On adoption it will form part of the Development Plan, which planning applications in that area will be assessed against. The plan includes policies which look to shape development, protect the environment, improve community facilities, create a sustainable community and support the local economy.
