Looking for the Neighbourhood Plan? Dear Parishioner, Welcome to the Newbold Verdon Neighbourhood Plan page where you will find from the 28th May 2018 the Pre-Submission Neighbourhood Plan and all the relevant appendices. There will also be a form for you to download and complete, should you wish to comment. The period of consultation ends on the 8th July, after which the Plan is submitted to Hinkley and Bosworth District for their consideration and a further round of public consultation. When this is completed the Plan is then presented to an independent examiner who decides whether the process we have gone through has met legal expectations and if the document also achieves those standards. Finally, if the examiner passes the Plan a referendum is held within the parish, where parishioners are asked to vote whether they agree or disagree with the Plan. A majority 'Yes' will see the Plan placed in the possession of Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council who must use it as part of the planning process. If you have any questions prior to the 28th May please direct the to me, Roger King at: email@example.com or ring 01455 822381. Regards Roger King (Chair)
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led guide for the future development, and conservation of an area: in our case, the Parish of Newbold Verdon.
A neighbourhood plan is about the use and development of land and may contain a vision, aims, planning policies, proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities, or allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development.
It may deal with a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues such as housing, employment, heritage and transport.
Neighbourhood Plans are a consequence of the Localism Act 2011 and must be taken into account by Hinkley and Bosworth Borough Council when considering future planning aplications.
