Neighbourhood Plans Under Preparation

‌‌Following the designation of a Neighbourhood Area the following Neighbourhood Plans are currently under preparation.

Bulcote Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish Council has now submitted its Draft Neighbourhood Plan to the District Council, and it has been concluded that it meets the statutory requirements. The Plan will now be subject to a six week public consultation under Regulation 16 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The consultation will be held between Thursday 12th September and Thursday 24th October 2019.

On the basis of the content in the Neighbourhood Plan consulted on in Spring 2019 it was concluded that there was no requirement to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment, and that under the requirements of the Habitats Directive there were no in combination effects on a ‘European site’ which would make the undertaking of a full Habitats Regulations Assessment necessary. Given the limited changes to the Submission Draft Neighbourhood Plan this remains the conclusion, and so an updated Screening Assessment has not been deemed necessary.

Any comments should be received by 5pm on the final day of the consultation period. This can be done through completing and returning the form below, or by email to or in writing to Planning Policy Business Unit, Newark & Sherwood District Council, Castle House, Great North Road, Newark-on-Trent, NG24 1BY
