Norton-juxta-Kempsey Neighbourhood Plan

Submitted Neighbourhood Plan Consultation – 21 May to 2 July 2021

Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Norton-juxta-Kempsey Parish Council submitted its Neighbourhood Plan to Wychavon District Council on 14 April 2021. In accordance with Regulation 16, a public consultation is being held from Friday 21 May to 5pm on Friday 2 July 2021, during which interested parties were invited to make comments on the submitted Norton-juxta-Kempsey Parish Neighbourhood Plan.

Norton-juxta-Kempsey Parish Council undertook consultation on an earlier draft of their Neighbourhood Plan in October and November 2020. Comments made during this period helped inform changes made to the document submitted to Wychavon District Council. The Neighbourhood Plan proposes a number of policies on the built and natural landscape, getting around, community facilities, employment and housing.

It was the responsibility of Wychavon District Council to collate all responses to the Regulation 16 consultation and pass them on to an independent examiner, who will assess them and the Neighbourhood Plan documents to determine whether the Neighbourhood Plan meets the relevant legislation and should proceed to a Referendum.
