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.

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 were sent to the examiner for due consideration.

The examiner has now provided his report which concludes that the neighbourhood plan meets the basic conditions, subject to some minor amendments.  Peterborough City Council has considered the contents of the Examiner's Report and his recommendations as well as the comments received on the neighbourhood plan and has concluded that it is in agreement with the findings of the report. The neighbourhood plan will proceed to a local referendum which will take place on Thursday 6 July.  The Examiner's Report and the Council's Decision Statement are available to download below.  Further information in relation to the referendum will be published in due course.

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.

The Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents can be viewed below:
