The Public Consultation Period (Regulation 15)

The next meeting of the NDP Steering Group will be on Wednesday 27th June at 7.30 in Goodrich Village Hall.

At this meeting the Steering Group will formally consider the representations that have been made by the Public and Statutory consultees and the proposed NDP Steering Group responses ,which in some cases have led to changes in the wording of the plan.

The Representations and Response Document can be viewed here in final draft form

Reg 15 – Reg 14 Representations Public and Statutory

The Proposed text of the NDP, which it is proposed to put to the Parish Council for final approval at the July Parish Council Meeting, is given below. Again it is in final draft form

Regulation 15 Draft NDP for 27 June Meeting

You will note that there  are relatively few comments from the general public.

The major points of discussion have been  related to the location of future housing, with meetings being held with Herefordshire Council officers. The latest draft NDP bears no significant changes in any area from that previously circulated for your comments.

The public are invited to attend all Steering Group Meetings but this meeting will be for discussion among Steering Group Members only – the consultation period being completed.

Members of  the Steering Group are  happy to informally clarify any issues you may have and there is also  the opportunity to put your views to  Parish Councillors before they make their decision on the plan in July.
