What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Statement from Cllr Brian Gamble
Chair Hednesford Town Council Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

Statement from Cllr Brian Gamble Chair Hednesford Town Council Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Today I was delighted that the Chairman of Hednesford Town Council (Cllr Alan Pearson) was able to submit to Cannock Chase Council the final version of the Neighbourhood Plan for Hednesford

Hednesford Town Council Chairman (Councillor Alan Pearson) delivering the Neighbourhood Plan to Cannock Chase Council

“Cannock Chase Council has advised that it has submitted the Hednesford Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents, along with all the representations received to the last consultation to the appointed Examiner and the Town Council will be updated on progress in due course. It is understood  that generally Examiners reports can be expected within around 2 months. All the representations made to the last consultation can be viewed on the Cannock Chase Council website

The timescales after this stage become mandatory and quite tight i.e. five weeks (unless an extension is agreed) from when the Examiners report is received to make a decision on whether or not to accept any changes that may be suggested by the Examiner and proceed to referendum. There is then  56 days from the date of this decision to hold the referendum. Further information will be published when available.”
