Following a short delay, the Ickford Neighbourhood Plan is now back-on-track
The public enquiry into 42 Worminghall Road and the subsequent possibility of a Judicial Review into the outcome, resulted in almost 3 months delays to progressing the Neighbourhood Plan, due in the main to the impact that this development will have on the settlement boundary and proposed policies.
Now we know that there will not be a review, we can make the required adjustments to the plan, and it is now the intention of the team to have this and the required background evidence and other supporting documents submitted to AVDC by the end of October. This should allow the next 6 week statutory consultation period to be completed, we hope before Christmas, so that final adjustments can be done before the formal independent examination and referendum.
It is a very lengthy and cumbersome process, and we would not be as advanced as we are were it not for the commitment and dedication of the team.
We will keep publishing updates on the website and in the Ickford Informer.
