A summary of the representations received in response to the Regulation 16 public consultation of the November 2022 Draft Woodplumpton Neighbourhood Plan can be found below:

Regulation 17 - Examination

Following the conclusion of the Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 consultation on Wednesday 22 March 2023 at 5pm, the Woodplumpton Neighbourhood Development Plan has been submitted for independent examination.

Rosemary Kidd MRTPI has been appointed as the independent examiner and is expected to carry out the examination at the end of April.

The Council has sent the plan, supporting information and representations to the examiner. The examination considers whether the plan meets the basic conditions and other requirements set out in law, in particular whether it:

  • has regard to national policy
  • contributes to the achievement of sustainable development
  • is in general conformity with the adopted strategic policies for the local area
  • is compatible with EU obligations
  • meets human rights requirements

Subject to the Plan being accepted as satisfactory and all of the relevant criteria complied with, we can hopefully expect a referendum later in the year.

Background information

The Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by a Neighbourhood Plan Working Group on behalf of Woodplumpton Parish Council, as the relevant qualifying body, (under Section 38A (12) of the Planning and Compensation Act 2004) for the 'Woodplumpton Neighbourhood Area' covering the Parish of Woodplumpton and designated by Preston City Council on June 2017.

The draft of the Woodplumpton Neighbourhood Plan was received by Preston City Council in July 2021. A revised version of the draft Woodplumpton Neighbourhood Plan was submitted in November 2022, superseding the July 2021 draft neighbourhood plan.
