Preston neighbourhood plan

Preston Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally. This Plan has been submitted to us and is subject to a six week consultation period, closing on 2 November.

If you require a hard copy, please contact us and a hard copy can be provided at cost: £5 for the Neighbourhood Development Plan, £15 for the Plan and all the published supporting evidence.

All comments must be received by 5pm on 2 November 2020.

You can comment by:

  • Completing the form and email it to or posting to Neighbourhood Planning, Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX
  • sending in your comments in writing or email provided that a name and address is supplied, we cannot accept anonymous comments.

All representations will be publicly available, and identifiable by name and (where applicable) organisation.  Your comments, name and address and, if applicable, organisation will be publicly available but your signature, email address and telephone number will be removed. Other personal information provided will be processed by Cotswold District Council in line with Data Protection legislation. To find out how we use your personal data, please view our privacy notice. You can request to be notified of our decision to make the plan under regulation 19.

All representations received will be sent to an independent examiner, along with the Plan and supporting evidence.

The examiner will consider whether the submitted Plan meets the Basic Conditions. These are the legal requirements it must meet to proceed to referendum. The examiner will use the consultation responses to inform his findings.

The examiner will prepare a report containing recommendations to be considered by us. It will be put forward for a referendum if conditions are met but not before 6 May 2021

If at the referendum more than 50% of people vote to support the plan, we will use it to help decide planning applications in Preston Parish.
