Pre-Submission (Regulation 14) Consultation

The Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Team would like to thank all of those who provided a comment or response to the Pre-Submission Consultation on the draft Thurston Neighbourhood Plan (NPD) which took place between 9th July and 31st August (Inclusive) 2018.

The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations required the proposed plan to be the subject of a 6-week (minimum) consultation before it is submitted to the local authority for independent examination. 

The requirement includes the following:

  • publicise the plan in a manner which brings it to the attention of people who live, work or run businesses in the neighbourhood area. This should include details of the proposed Neighbourhood Plan, details of where and when it may be viewed, details on how to make comments on the plan and the date by which comments must be received (at least 6 weeks from the date on which it is first publicised).
  • consult statutory consultation bodies whose interests may be affected by the plan.
  • send a copy of the proposed plan to the local authority.
