The Ickford Neighbourhood Plan has now successfully been through Independent Examination, and has been posted on AVDC’s now (Buckinghamshire County – Aylesbury Vale area) website. It would normally proceed straight away to a Referendum with the villagers, and if it were to get a majority vote, would then be formally adopted.
However due to the postponement of elections by HMG, have said no referendums can take place before 6 May 2021 and the referendum version posted on this site is for information only, it is not a consultation.
So what does this mean for Ickford?
In decision-making terms: Where the local planning authority has issued a decision statement (as set out under Regulation 25 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) detailing its intention to send a neighbourhood plan to referendum, that plan can be given significant weight in decision-making, so far as the plan is material to the application.
