Neighbourhood Plan - Latest News

February 2015

 Thank you to all the residents who have helped shape the Neighbourhood Plan by giving your views via  consultations, drop in days, and surveys over the past few years.  The Plan is now finished; it was approved by East Leake Parish Council on 13 January 2015 and submitted to Rushcliffe Borough Council on 15 January. Rushcliffe must undertake a number of formal steps, including a consultation period and appointing an examiner.  There will be a referendum later in the year when residents will be asked to vote in favour or against the Plan. This is a formal process like an election, and you will get a polling card in due course. If over half the people voting are in favour of the Plan, it is “made”, i.e. it will become part of planning law.

You can read the plan and supporting documents by following the links on the Neighbourhood Plan Web page or drop in to the Parish Office to read a paper copy.  A leaflet summarising changes made to the policies after the last consultation is being distributed to households, and copies of this are available from the Parish Office
