As part of our commitment to delivering the best services possible, we regularly consult with the community on a wide range of proposals and plans. We do this in a number of different ways, including the use of paper questionnaires, electronic consultation and public meetings.
Northleach with Eastington Neighbourhood Development Plan
Northleach with Eastington Town Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish of Northleach with Eastington. The Plan sets out a vision for the future and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally. This plan has been submitted to Cotswold District Council, and is subject to a six week consultation, prior to being considered by an independent examiner. The examiner will consider the plan and its supporting evidence, and review the representations made. Should the examiner find that the plan meets with the Basic Conditions, it will proceed to referendum. Should more than 50% of votes cast support the plan, it will be made.
All comments must be received by 17:00 on 17 October 2018.
