Preparing for Regulation 16 - Formal Submission of the Northill Parish Neighbourhood Plan to Central Bedfordshire Council
27 Aug 2018. The Steering Group has finished amending the draft Neighbourhood Plan ready for approval by Northill Parish Council, hopefully on Thurs September 13th. The Site Assessment report, the Consultation Statement and the Basic Conditions Statement have now been completed and it is expected that they will be approved at the same time. Once approved, they will be published on the appropriate pages of this website.
Update on progress with the parish wide consultation process (Regulation 14)
22nd May 2018 Thank you to everyone who attended our Consultation Events held in February, and responded to our Online Survey by April 11th. We received a total of 63 responses, which considering that each respondent had the opportunity to comment on each of our 27 policies and to make general comments, means that the Steering Group has had a lot of work to do in analysing the responses. The Project Team had an initial look through at a two day workshop in late April, and the Steering Group are now looking through and approving any revisions. We hope to complete this process shortly, ready for some work on the text and graphics.
