A draft Neighbourhood Plan is currently being written and final site assessment work is informing our 'preferred site options'. It won't be long before we have our shortlist of sites.
Ashington PC has been awarded a grant of 9k by Groundwork UK to further fund the services of our Planning Consultant for much of the remainder of the Neighbourhood Plan.
We asked Site Promoters to identify which of our Needs and Priorities they are prepared to deliver on their Site. The deadline for responses has now passed. This information, together with our Site Assessment work, will inform our preferred sites choices. It is our intention to consult on the preferred sites with the Community later in the summer with a view to Regulation 14 consultation on the draft Plan in the early Autumn.
