Parish Council approval given to submit
Whitchurch Neighbourhood Plan to
Following careful consideration of all comments received during
the Regulation 14 consultation process, Whitchurch Parish
Council were updated during the Parish Council meeting on
April 17th about the limited changes made to the draft
Neighbourhood Plan. There are no substantive changes and the
updated and final version of the Plan was provided before the
meeting with a summary of key changes given at the meeting by
the steering group Chair. The Parish Council members present
unanimously approved that the final version of the Plan should
be submitted to Buckinghamshire Council and the plan has
therefore now passed Regulation 15.
Next step is Regulation 16 : The Whitchurch Neighbourhood
Plan will now be formally submitted to Buckinghamshire Council
for further review and they will ultimately appoint an
independent examiner to consider the Whitchurch
Neighbourhood Plan for alignment with due process, plus
national and local policies. This has to happen before a
referendum (Yes or No) to approve the Plan can happen, but we
are now in the latter stages of the process and getting ever
closer to the village referendum and securing a Neighbourhood
Plan to help define the development of Whitchurch until 2040.
Your Village, Your Neighbourhood Plan.
