Regulation 15 reached!

Our Neighbourhood Plan has reached Regulation 15 status

Stapeley & District Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has prepared a revised version of the Neighbourhood Plan (version 2.1) which has been submitted to Cheshire East Council in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Plan (General) Regulations 2012.

Comments provided during Regulation 14 Consultation have influenced the final Draft Plan that has been submitted today.  Following submission a further statutory consultation period, known as the ‘publicity period’ will be conducted by Cheshire East Council as the Local Planning Authority.

At a later stage, the Draft Plan will be subject to independent examination and if it passes this stage, there will be a referendum conducted by Cheshire East Council. If over 50% of those voting, vote in favour of the Plan, it will be ‘made’ which means that it will be adopted by Cheshire East Council and will form part of the planning framework against which all planning applications must be determined.
