Billingshurst Neighbourhood Development Plan Regulation 16 Consultation

In light of recent announcements regarding COVID-19, Horsham District Council has reviewed its protocols regarding the consultation process for neighbourhood plans. In order to continue to progress neighbourhood plans, we have made a decision to restart the consultation process with measures we feel are in accordance to the government guidelines. Please ensure you are safe and observe government guidance regarding COVID – 19.  

Billingshurst Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNP). The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications locally. In accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012 (as amended), the BNP and associated documents will go out to consultation between:

5pm Wednesday 17 June to midnight Wednesday 12 August 2020 for 8 weeks inviting representations on the draft submission plan, basic conditions statement, consultation statement and the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) screening opinion. Copies of the BNP Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents are available to view below.

Documents will not be made available in deposit locations due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. If local residents have difficulty in engaging online we have provided a telephone number and email address below. Members of the public are encouraged to leave their details for an officer to contact them back if they need further information. Each enquiry will be dealt on a case by case basis.


Telephone: 01403 215398
