Neighbourhood Planning Protocol

Neighbourhood Planning Protocol Ė an update to the Protocol which was previously agreed in July 2020 by SPI. The July 2020 version included the addition of measures to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. We are now in a position where restrictions are no longer in place, and we can remove the amendments made in July 2020. We are therefore proposing to remove reference to Covid-19 measures. At the same time we are proposing other alterations regarding modifications of neighbourhood plans.
