Neighbourhood Plan News
Meetings with Developers: Members of the Steering Group put points and queries, from residents' comments in the formal consultation period last year, to the representatives of each of the sites earmarked for new housing development and for safeguarding in the Draft Plan, to make the community's expectations clear.
Release of Green Belt for Development: As there appears to be no possibility of release of Green Belt Land ahead of Rushcliffe Borough Council's Review, the Neighbourhood Plan will go forward with the Housing Policy as an appendix of recommendations. This will enable us to complete soon. The release of land and allocation of sites would then be done on completion of the Rushcliffe Local Plan Part 2.
Timescale: We hope the Plan will be completed and approved in the next couple of months and passed to Rushcliffe Borough Council, to independent examination in the autumn and then to referendum in early 2017.
Linda Abbey, Chairman of the Keyworth Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.
