whatever your opinion … pls complete the survey

2018-10-13 12.23.27There’s a simple survey which goes with the Neighbourhood Plan consultation. It’s being run for two reasons:

1 to capture comments. This is very important and before we move to the next stage we must respond to very comment.

2 to demonstrate engagement. Not everyone will want to comment but we would like to know how successful our consultation has been so if people can use the survey to simply indicate their support (or otherwise) for the Plan that will be a great help.

The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MNDMVLJ. Please note that you do not have to provide any comments, although it’s excellent if you do, just identify yourself  and then give us a yes or no to the final question.

Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan Reg 14 Pre-submission Consultation

This Neighbourhood Plan Pre-submission Consultation is in line with Regulation 14 of the The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations (2012) and will run for a period of six weeks from Monday 1st October to Friday 16th November 2018

It offers a last opportunity to influence Histon & Impington’s Neighbourhood Plan before it is submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council, examined by a planning inspector and will then be voted on by the community.

A Consultation Statement, including a summary of all comments received and how these were considered, will be made available along with the amended Neighbourhood Plan at a future date. Personal details of individuals commenting on the plan will not be published.

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has produced a draft Neighbourhood Plan using your opinions and comments from the Big Survey, together with groups and individuals consulted over the last 3 years. It is a draft plan for you to read and comment on.

  • Are there policies you wish to comment on?
  • What are your views on the Design Guide?
  • What are your views on the Open Space designations?
  • Are there items you think may be wrong?
  • Is there something missing?

The Plan is available to view by clicking on the following link: Neighbourhood Plan version 2

A short version of the Plan is available.

A paper copy of the draft plan can be viewed at Histon Library and Histon & Impington Parish Council office, Recreation Ground Centre, New Road, Impington.

Comments on the draft plan can be recorded on the Pre-submission Consultation Online Comments Form, which is available here or the Comments Form can be downloaded and printed by clicking on the link below:

H&I Neighbourhood Plan version 1.4

Version 1.4 is the version of the plan referred to in my report to the Parish Council dated 17 Sep 18. You can open and/or download a copy by clicking on the logo below. As I explained in my report this version is subject to a final tidy up before it goes out for consultation at the end of the month. This version is not confidential as such but given that we have quite an extensive and formal consultation planned it would seem best not to share it widely at present.

Neighbourhood Plan Update

We have been very busy over the summer doing further work to the draft Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan. It’s really taking shape now.

The next big event will be the pre-submission consultation at the beginning of October when we will be taking the draft plan out to the community to get your views.

Look out for all the ways in which you’ll be able to access and comment on the plan – we’ll be sending out lots of communication as it gets nearer to the consultation period.
