Terrington St John Neighbourhood Plan

Information on the Terrington St John Parish Council's proposed neighbourhood development plan

Background

Terrington St John Parish Council have independently prepared a proposed neighbourhood development plan review. It's intended to guide development in Terrington St John Parish and provide criteria (alongside the Borough Council’s Local Plan) for decisions on planning applications there.

We have to manage the process by which the Parish Council’s proposed plan is checked for compliance with national requirements. Comments received are used by an independent examiner and the Borough Council to help decide if the proposed neighbourhood plan:

  • contributes to achieving sustainable development
  • conforms with the strategic policies of the (Borough Council’s) Local Plan
  • gives appropriate regard to the National Planning Policy Framework
  • is compatible with EU obligations

If the plan successfully passes these tests, a local referendum will be held. And if the plan is supported by more than 50% of the votes, it will become part of the official ‘development plan’ for Terrington St John Parish.
