To 'make' the Barnham and Eastergate Neighbourhood Development Plan (Review) 2019-2031 pdf icon PDF 310 KB

The Barnham and Eastergate Neighbourhood Development Plan 2019-2031 passed Examination in October 2021.  The Examiner of this modified Plan concluded that the Plan passed the Examination and that the material modifications do not change the nature of the Plan and it does not require a Referendum so should proceed to be ‘made’.

 

This ‘making’ of the plan will give it legal force and it will form part of the statutory Development Plan for that area.  Consequently, decisions on planning applications in the neighbourhood area will need to be made in accordance with the Neighbourhood Development Plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
