STATEMENT 13 June 2019
It’s a great shame when the democratic process is attacked and people take matters into their own hands. The official District Council posters giving notice of the Neighbourhood Plan consultation period have been taken down by persons unknown. These posters, in addition to the flyers distributed by the Neighbourhood Plan Group, gave residents of the parish details of how to submit their comments on the Plan. By taking them down someone, presumably opposing the process by which the Plan will be finally approved, was trying to deny residents the information they are entitled to – this is quite shameful and does nothing other than eloquently illustrating the paucity of their argument. The posters were replaced.
On a more positive note the consultation period ends on 28th June and hopefully a good number of residents will have sent in their comments. We will then have to wait while the Independent Examiner studies the Plan and writes his report. This is likely to take some time but we will try to keep residents posted of progress towards a referendum, perhaps in the autumn.
Remember, without a Plan the village is at the mercy of developers with very little with which to fight for what residents have expressed a preference for – small-scale development with a decent proportion of affordable homes and protection for what we all value – our rural environment.
