Neighbourhood Plan - revised submission draft approved

The revised submission draft of the Keyworth Neighbourhood Plan was a major item on the agenda for the meeting of the Parish Council on 12th December. The meeting was attended by twenty-eight members of the public, several of whom were invited to make comments and ask questions. Click here to see the advisory committee chairman's report. Following intense questioning and lively debate, the Parish Council voted by an overwhelming majority to accept the plan as revised by the Neighbourhood Plan advisory committee. The plan will now be forwarded to Rushcliffe Borough Council to be considered in its deliberations to create the Local Plan Part 2 including the Green Belt Review. This will probably take place in the first few months of 2017. The Borough Council is entitled to further revise the plan before it is placed before the community for approval or rejection via a referendum. Further information will be posted on the Parish Council website as this process and any associated consultation takes place.

Whilst the Neighbourhood Plan advisory committee has completed the task set by the Parish Council, its former chairman, Cllr Nic Seller, will try to deal with any relevant comments or questions that are submitted to him by letter or email up to and including Monday 16th January although, due to the Christmas and New Year holidays, replies over this period may be delayed a little.
