ASHINGTON NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
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 restart with the consultation process with measures we feel are in accordance to the government guidelines.
Ashington Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan (ANP). 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 ANP and associated documents will go out to consultation:
From 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 full Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and supporting evidence. Copies of the ANP Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents are available to view on the Horsham District Council’s website: https://www.horsham.gov.uk/planningpolicy/planning-policy/currentconsultations
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. Please leave your details for an officer to contact you back if they need further information. This arrangement will be under review throughout the consultation period.
