North Wootton Neighbourhood Plan Examination

The Borough Council, in agreement with North Wootton Parish Council, has appointed Tim Jones as an independent examiner for North Wootton Neighbourhood Plan. The examiner will now assess whether the North Wootton Neighbourhood Plan meets legal requirements and should proceed to referendum.

All the responses to the Regulation 16 consultation were forwarded to the examiner for consideration and available here.

Regulation 16 consultation

North Wootton Parish Council submitted their Neighbourhood Plan to the Borough Council on 12 September 2023, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Regulation 15. We have reviewed the submitted documentation and can confirm this meets the requirements of Regulation 15 (Legal check letter).

As the relevant local planning authority, we are required to consult on the submitted Neighbourhood Plan in advance of an independent examination, under Regulation 16.

The consultation was undertaken between Friday 13 October 2023 and Friday 24 November 2023. Responses will be given directly to the examiner to determine if the plan meets the “basic conditions”, the statutory tests that a Neighbourhood Plan needs to fulfil.
