Second Submitted Neighbourhood Plan Consultation - 7 January to 18 February 2022

Following the submission of the Broadway Neighbourhood Plan on 5 July 2021, Wychavon District Council invited comments from individuals and organisations under Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 from 23 July to 3 September 2021. Wychavon District Council appointed Edwards Cousins of Radcliffe Chambers, Lincoln’s Inn to conduct the Examination of the Broadway Neighbourhood Plan, with the Examination commencing in October 2021.

The Examiner raised concerns relating to the omission of a representation made to the Regulation 14 draft Broadway Neighbourhood Plan by Turley on behalf of Amber Retirement Living Limited from the Consultation Statement. As such, and in agreement with Broadway Parish Council, the Broadway Neighbourhood Plan and associated documentation was revised and Wychavon District Council conducted a second Regulation 16 consultation for a period of six weeks commencing on Friday 7 January 2022 and concluding at 5pm on Friday 18 February 2022.

Submitted Neighbourhood Plan Consultation - 23 July to 3 September 2021

Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Broadway Parish Council submitted its Neighbourhood Plan to Wychavon District Council on 5 July 2021. In accordance with Regulation 16, a public consultation was held from Friday 23 July to 5pm on Friday 3 September 2021, during which interested parties were invited to make comments on the submitted Broadway Neighbourhood Plan.

Broadway Parish Council undertook consultation on an earlier draft of their Neighbourhood Plan in September and October 2020. Comments made during this period helped inform changes made to the document submitted to Wychavon District Council. The Neighbourhood Plan proposes a number of policies on future housing and development, the built environment, the natural environment, the local economy and tourism, and the community.

It is the responsibility of Wychavon District Council to collate all responses to the Regulation 16 consultation and pass them on to an independent examiner, who will assess them and the Neighbourhood Plan documents to determine whether the Neighbourhood Plan meets the relevant legislation and should proceed to a Referendum.
