As the Neighbourhood Plan has now been made (adopted), the Steering Group has been disbanded. The Parish Council has formed a NP Monitoring Group (NPMG) with the following three specific purposes:
The NPMG is a working group of, and accountable and reports to, the Parish Council (PC). It has no delegated powers; recommendations for action / progress on all matters will be made to the PC for consideration.
The NPMG will feed any comments and /or concerns they have regarding the application of NP policies by Planning Authorities, to the PC Planning Committee for action.
If/when recommendations are made for a review of the NP the PC will form a new working group to carry out the review; this could be necessary if one of the major sites does not progress to development, but in any case within five years of adoption of the Plan .
Terms of Reference for the Neighbourhood Plan Monitoring Group were approved by the Parish Council on 17th September 2018. They can be viewed here.
