Newbold Verdon Neighbourhood Plan
Neighbourhood Plan Update: 11th November 2019
Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Consultation Notice
From today, Monday 11th November 2019, to Sunday 1st December 2019, we will be running a consultation on the SEA and using any responses to inform our final submission of the Neighbourhood Plan before Hinckley and Bosworth Borough council undertake the next stage in achieving a plan, a formal public consultation.
SEAs are not always demanded of neighbourhood plans but because we have considered the question of where housing might go in the parish the planning authority, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, deemed that it would be advisable for us to have an SEA undertaken on our behalf.
The SEA looked at the proposed neighbourhood plan and asked the question, ‘In what way might this plan affect the environment of the parish positively or negatively and what can we, independent assessors, advise on how to make the plan environmentally sustainable?’
From today parishioners and other stakeholders will be able to see what the SEA recommendations are to improve our neighbourhood plan and how the independent assessors came to these conclusions. Alongside the recommendations will be the response the Parish Council is minded to make and the impact, if any, this might have on the plan.
Parishioners and Stakeholders now have the opportunity to respond both to the SEA, its conclusions and the response of the Parish Council. This can be done by reading the SEA and supporting documentation (see below) and then completing the Parishioner and Stakeholder SEA Consultation Response form (also below).
Drop In Sessions: 15th and 16th November
Two drop-in sessions for parishioners and stakeholders have been arranged at the library on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November, each from 10a.m. to 12 noon. Members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee and Parish Councillors will be available to answer any questions on the SEA and the proposed response within the neighbourhood plan.
