Additional documents:


The Planning Policy Officer introduced the report and informed the Committee of a typographical error, whereby recommendation two referred to point 1.8, rather than point 2.8 of the report. A minor modification to the plan, through the addition of an addendum was recommended to the Committee, as a result of a Natural England Advice Note published in July 2020. The proposed addendum was shown in point 2.8 of the report.


The Planning Policy Officer highlighted that a post-examination neighbourhood plan would hold significant material consideration, significant weight would follow a decision to proceed to referendum, with full weight given following a successful referendum. In line with government guidance, no referendums would take place until 6 May 2020.
