The Parish Council approved the draft NDP at their September meeting. This means that we can proceed to the Regulation 14 Consultation.
This consultation allows many people who may be affected by the NDP to inspect it and return any comments they feel are appropriate. It will be widely distributed: Regulation 14 Consultation List.
The Neighbourhood Development Plan Regulations insist that this consultation be at least six weeks long. Our Regulation 14 consultation will run from 1st November 2017 to 31st December 2017. This allows 8 or 9 weeks, allowing people plenty of time for consideration.
The most important documents are the NDP itself and the Comment Form. If you need more comment forms they can be printed from the one below. The NDP explains how to submit the form once it is completed.

Those are the main documents to look at. However Herefordshire Council have prepared environmental reports confirming that the NDP does not conflict with any countywide environmental issues:

This Consultation Log shows the comments that have been received. It will be updated throughout the consultation period.
The consultation is now complete. All the comments have been collected and have been reviewed by our Planning Consultant.
They have been gathered together with responses and any proposed amendments arising to the NDP. These can be viewed in Appendix 2 of Consultation Statement Part 2.
Three of the comments were made by site owners in reference to potential development on their sites in Burley Gate. In particular, a new site was proposed.
Part of the NDP process is that we must give due deliberation to all suggested sites. So at the January Parish Council meeting we asked our Planning Consultant to look again at the options at Burley Gate. His report can be found on the Housing Site Assessment (Addendum) page.
Now that the comments have been reviewed and amendments made to the NDP, the next stage is to ask the Parish Council to approve the changes to the NDP. This is described on the NDP Submission to Herefordshire Council page.
