Neighbourhood Plan 2014-2034

In accordance with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Examination Process, following public and statutory consultation on the First Draft of the Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2014-2034 (November 2017), the Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan (BPNP) group have considered all the comments made and have updated the Neighbourhood Plan document for submission in accordance with Regulation 15.

Regulation 15
This is the next step in the Neighbourhood Planning process where the revised Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan document will be assessed by SHDC for compliance with regulations and legislation. SHDC will then organise the appointment of an Independent Examiner to review the entire Plan.

Regulation 16
Once an Inspector has been appointed, SHDC will publish the Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan for further public consultation under Regulation 16, to give anyone interested in the plan an opportunity to make representations before the Examination.

Regulation 17
After the consultation period SHDC will collate the responses and send these plus the submitted plan & accompanying documents to the Examiner.

Regulation 18
The Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan document and supporting information will be assessed for compliance by the Examiner. The Report will explain Examiner’s reasons for recommending the plan can:
(a) go forward to a Referendum unchanged
(b) go forward to a Referendum with Modifications or
(c) not go forward.

SHDC will publish a report of its decisions following considering the Examiner’s Report. If SHDC propose making a decision different to the Examiner, it must publish a report and invite further representations.

Referendum
SHDC organises, holds and pays for a referendum on the post-Examination version of the Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan. Providing more than 50% of those taking part in the Referendum vote in favour of the plan being made part of the development plan for the local area, SHDC must proceed to make the plan part of its development plan.

The Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan is formally “Made” – at a full District Council meeting
SHDC will formally make the Neighbourhood Plan part of its development plan and use it from then on for making decisions on planning applications together with its Local Plan (JLP).

Regulations 19 & 20
The LPA publishes details of the plan and notifies Brixton Parish Council and anyone known to have an interest in it.

The draft Neighbourhood Plan has been removed from the website as further compliance revisions are required by South Hams District Council. The Neighbourhood Plan Group is in the process of making these revisions and the updated plan will be available shortly.






Neighbourhood Planning is a way for communities to decide the future of the places where they live and work.  The Government has introduced the community right to neighbourhood planning through the Localism Act.
 
The Neighbourhood Planning process is laid down by national guidance and includes finding the detailed views of the local population.  Views on the Brixton Parish Neighbourhood Plan have been gathered over the last 30 months.
