Neighbourhood plans


Neighbourhood planning

The Localism Act 2011 introduced the concept of neighbourhood plans and neighbourhood orders, which are statutory plans that may be prepared by a parish council or recognised neighbourhood forum for a neighbourhood area.

Neighbourhood plans and orders are optional. There is no statutory requirement for a plan or order to be prepared for any area.

Neighbourhood plan consultations

There are currently no neighbourhood plans being consulted upon by Peterborough City Council.

Submitted Neighbourhood Plans 

Peakirk

The Peakirk Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to Peterborough City Council in December 2016.  It underwent the Regulation 16 'Publication' Consultation for six weeks between 23 January and 6 March 2017.

Following this consultation, the Peakirk Neighbourhood Plan will be subject to an Independent Examination.  David Kaiserman BA DipTP MRTPI has been appointed to undertake this examination.  The neighbourhood plan, supporting documents and all comments received during the consultation have been sent to the examiner for due consideration.

The examiner’s report will be published once it has been issued and all consultees who requested to be informed of future stages of the plan will be notified.  If the examiner finds that the Peakirk Neighbourhood Plan, as submitted or with alterations, meets the ‘basic conditions’ as required by the Localism Act, it will proceed to a local referendum.  If successful, the Peakirk Neighbourhood Plan will be ‘made’ (brought into legal force) and will form part of the Development Plan for Peterborough City Council and be used in making decisions on relevant planning applications.
