Neighbourhood Plan - latest

Keyworth Parish Council has submitted its draft Neighbourhood Plan to Rushcliffe Borough Council. The Keyworth Neighbourhood Plan contains local objectives and planning policies which the Borough Council will use when considering planning applications within the parish. The Borough Council is now required to publicise the draft plan for six weeks and invite representations to be made during this period. The consultation will run from Tuesday, 5 September 2017 until 5pm on Tuesday 14 October 2017. Further details relating to the consultation can be found at: http://www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/planningpolicy/neighbourhoodplanning/. Following the consultation, the draft plan and all representations received will then be considered by an independent examiner. This has to happen before the plan can be approved.
