We have had a great response to the two drop in sessions we have held in the village hall over the last few weekends. Each session was attended well and we would like to thank everyone that came along and saw us for advice and help on how to respond to the local plan.
If you have not been able to attend one of our sessions we are still willing and able to help in any way we can. The deadline for responses to the current draft local plan is not until 5pm on Wednesday 17th May. There is still time to respond!
It is important that as many people respond as possible. Numbers do really make a difference. If you would like any advice or help with your response you will find lots of information on our website at http://www.chalgroveshield.org.uk/may-newsletter/
Alternatively, you can drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will find links on our website to the SODC response form, or our alternative format, that you can download, complete, and then send to the planning department at email@example.com
Please encourage as many as your friends or neighbours to respond, and if you have a partner get them to respond to!
What happens next?
SODC will review all the responses they have received as part of this current consultation. They will then review the local plan and make any amendments/additions that they consider necessary. A final version of the Local Plan will then be completed. A further consultation will then take place before the Local Plan is sent to an Inspector for review. The plan will then either be approved or rejected with recommendations for SODC to follow. All responses received to the final consultation stage will be sent to the Inspector along with the final Local Plan and supporting documents. It is a long process and we will keep you up to date at every stage.
