CONSULTATION – HOUSING NEEDS

During September and October 2020, we asked for feedback on the draft vision and objectives for our neighbourhood plan and also on possible planning policy themes and community actions. Background to the neighbourhood planning process is available on our website newbiggintowncouncil.gov.uk/neighbourhood-plan/.  Thank you to everyone that responded to the consultation.  We are currently considering all of the comments.

 

We now need your feedback on how housing matters should be addressed within our plan. We could not include this as part of the last consultation as we were waiting for the results of further work.  This initial housing work is currently awaiting signing off by Locality following a recent Government announcement that proposes the formula used to allocate targets for English Planning Authorities be revised.

 

  • You can provide your thoughts on the questions set out within the consultation document that is being delivered to every door in the Newbiggin Parish, using the online form that is available on the below link. Alternatively, you can send us your comments in writing by:

 

Comments should be received by 22 January 2021.

CONSULTATION – DRAFT VISION, THEMES, OBJECTIVES AND COMMUNITY ACTIONS – CLOSED

Last year we asked you for your help to identify the ‘big issues’ for our neighbourhood plan. We have reviewed all the valuable feedback and prepared a draft vision for our town, as well as identifying planning policy themes and other actions that could address the big issues. Now we
need your views on our proposals to deliver the vision for Newbiggin by the Sea to inform the preparation of our draft neighbourhood plan.

Before consulting on a draft neighbourhood plan, we feel it is important to ask for further input from our community on the scope of our plan. A consultation document is being delivered throughout the parish and an online version is available below.  The document sets out the vision and objectives for the plan. It also proposes a possible planning policy approach that our plan could take. In addition, we have identified some projects that could help address the big issues.

The closing date for comments is 23rd October.

Neighbourhood Planning Consultation Survey

We consider that there is a need to review current housing allocations and to inform this, an independent local housing needs assessment is currently being undertaken. This will be an important role for our plan and subject to a separate consultation later this year.
