West Grinstead 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, a number of which were published for public consultation shortly before the government imposed the nationwide lockdown. In order to continue to progress neighbourhood plans, we have made a decision to continue with 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.

West Grinstead Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan (WGNP). 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 WGNP and associated documents will go out to consultation from:

5pm Friday 10 July to midnight on Friday 4 September 2020 for 8 weeks inviting representations on the draft submission plan, basic conditions statement, consultation statement and the full Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). Copies of the WGNP Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents are available to view below.

Hard copies of the 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. This will be on a message service where members of the public are encouraged to leave their details for an officer to contact them back if they need further information.
