We had intended to commence the Statutory Regulation 14 Consultation process at the end of March. However, we have been advised by the Local Planning Authority to postpone doing this in order to ensure that those who are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) are given a fair opportunity to engage in the process, and also to allow hard copy material to be made available to those without access to the internet.
If you wish to submit comments on the Plan In the meantime, please send them by email to the Parish Clerk at [email protected] Your comments will be held over until such time as the Regulation 14 Consultation has taken place. We are particularly interested in suggestions that will strengthen the Plan.
