Somerford Keynes neighbourhood plan

Somerford Keynes Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan which sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies. It will be used to help decide local planning applications. 

The Plan has been subject to consultation and independent examination.  We have considered the examiner’s report, and determined, that subject to his recommended modifications, the plan should proceed to referendum.  Restrictions on public ballots due to Covid-19, means the referendum will not take place until May next year, unless the guidance changes.

Temporary Government guidance means that in the meantime, the plan can be given significant weight in decision-making, in so far as the plan is material to the application.
