Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - update

Posted to website June 14th 2018

If you are thinking that you haven't seen or heard much about the Neighbourhood Plan of late, well you would be correct. This is not that work has stopped, it hasn't - it has been a busy time putting together the Plan which is now in its Pre-Submission Draft form and was approved by the Advisory Committee on 11th June and is being presented to the Parish Council for their approval in July. The aim is that the public consultation will commence at the end of July when all the stakeholders and residents will have the chance to comment on the Plan. The village will be informed where, when and how to comment in due course.

The delay, in part is due to Charnwood Borough Councils decision to introduce a new Local Plan consultation document. It is necessary to have a housing target to work to over the Neighbourhood Plan period and this is needed to know how many homes to allocate in the Plan. Ordinarily we must meet the targets specified in the Local Plan as Neighbourhood Plans cannot promote fewer houses than CBC require. The discussion document 'Towards a Local Plan for Charnwood' published in April 2018 identifies the need for housing growth up to 2036, it is this document that the Plan must comply with. The document identifies a range of new home numbers for the Borough up to 2036. It identifies options for distributing this level of growth but doesn't establish Parish-wide targets, so it has been necessary for the team to put together a Methodology Document which is now complete and has been to presented CBC who it is hoped will agree the approach.

Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - Next Steps Open Day

Posted to website April 5th 2018

The Quorn Neighbourhood Plan Next Steps Open Day was held on Saturday 24 March 2018. Before the doors were opened Dennis Marchant, the Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee Chair presented Paul Goodman the Parish Council Administration Assistant who was retiring with a small gift and card from the committee and thanked him for his guidance and support of the Quorn NP process.

It was a cold and wet morning but still over 140 residents took the time and trouble to come and agree or disagree with the emerging policies and to speak to the team of volunteers. Gary Hughes Parish Council Chairman, Hilary Fryer County Councillor, Richard Sheppard Borough Councillor and Nicky Morgan MP also called in to add their support.

The findings will now be analysed by Yourlocale, our consultants, and the pre-submission draft document prepared ready for presentation to all the stakeholders including the residents for comment. The dates of the six week pre-submission consultation will be in line with Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations (2012) and will be publicised soon.

If you require further information, contact the Parish Office.
 


Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - Next Steps Open Day

Posted to website March 19th 2018

Thank You for your active support of the development of the Neighbourhood Plan for Quorn.

In August 2017, over 150 of you took the time and trouble to come to speak to us at the first Open Day. Now over 600 people have completed the questionnaires including more than 60 young people. The community and council volunteers have been working on your returns and analysing what you have told us. This will enable us to draft the policies reflecting those issues you believe are important for Quorn’s future. You are now invited to attend this Open Day and provide feedback on the Neighbourhood Plan so far. Remember! this is your Plan and it is now time to:

Tell us … have we got these policies right to serve Quorn as our village inevitably develops and grows? These are the policies that will influence future planning decisions.

The important date for your diary is Saturday 24th March 2017 - 10.00am to 1.00pm at the Village Hall where the volunteers will be available to answer any questions and talk to you about their interesting work.

Free refreshments will be available - so come on down to the village hall to meet with neighbours and have your say!!

If you require further information or assistance getting to the venue, contact Paul Goodman in the Parish Office.
