The Regulation 16 Consultation of Stanton Drew Neighbourhood Plan will commence on 22nd November 2019 and responses must be received no later than 5pm on Friday, 24th January 2020. Please be aware that all representations will be publicly available. 

As this consultation runs over the Christmas holidays the consultation period will be extended. The regulations require a minimum of 6 weeks, this consultation will be increased to 9 weeks.

Full details can be found on the BaNES webpage dedicated to this Stanton Drew Neighbourhood Plan consultation:

The Draft Stanton Drew Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Bath & North East Somerset Council by Stanton Drew Parish Council. 

A draft plan was prepared in March 2018, and at this stage the Parish Council undertook a pre-submission consultation on an earlier draft with the Local Community and Stakeholders. Following the submission a period of formal consultation weeks is required to be carried out by the Local Planning Authority before the draft Plan can be submitted to an Independent Examiner. Due to the Christmas period the consultation has been extended from 6 to 9 weeks.

If successful at both examination and referendum, the Neighbourhood Plan will be used to determine planning applications in the parish of Stanton Drew.

WOULD YOU PREFER TO SEE A PRINTED VERSION? During the consultation period there will be a printed version available to view in the Church Porch, St Mary’s Church, Stanton Drew. Also in Bath Central Library (normal opening hours) and The One Stop Shop, Manvers St, Bath (normal opening hours).
