What do we have to do to produce a Neighbourhood Plan?

  • Consult the community at all stages
  • Understand local issues and concerns
  • Provide evidence to underpin the plan, via:
    • Community survey to all households
    • Housing Needs Survey for those with an unfulfilled housing need (private or social)
    • Call for possible development sites
  • Consult on a draft Neighbourhood Plan plan and listen to feedback
  • Consult on final Neighbourhood Plan and submit it to Sedgemoor DC and the Government
  • Approved or rejected by an independent inspector
  • A community referendum on whether to adopt
