Neighbourhood Development Plan

Consultation on Brandon and Bretford Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Rugby Borough Council would like to invite representations on the Brandon and Bretford Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Brandon and Bretford Neighbourhood Development Plan was submitted to Rugby Borough Council on 5 July 2018.

In line with Regulation 16 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 Rugby Borough Council now has to publicise the plan for a period of 6 weeks and invite representations on whether the proposal meets the basic conditions that are stated in the Regulations. These require that the plan:

  • Has regard to national policy and guidance from the Secretary of State;
  • Contributes to sustainable development;
  • Is in general conformity with the strategic policy of the development plan for the area or any part of that area;
  • Doesn’t breach or is otherwise compatible with EU obligations- this includes the SEA Directive of 2001/42/EC; and that
  • The making of the Neighbourhood Plan is not likely to have a significant effect on a European site (as defined in the Conservation of Habitats and Species regulations 2010(d)) either alone or in combination with other plans or projects.

This consultation runs from 4 September 2018 until 5pm on 16 October 2018. Details of where to view the Neighbourhood Development Plan and accompanying documents along with details on how to make representations, are included within the Statement of Representation Procedure and Fact which can be found Here

All representations received will be forwarded to the Independent Examiner for consideration.
