To agree the response to the consultation on
the submission version of the Winkfield Neighbourhood Plan
(Regulation 16) and to submit the Plan for Examination (Regulation
The Executive Member for Planning and Transport agrees:
I. the Council’s response to the Submission version of the Winkfield Neighbourhood Plan (Regulation 16) as set out in Appendix A, and
II. to submit the Plan for Examination (Regulation 17)
The Council, as a consultee, can make a response to the Submission consultation (Regulation 16) and is also required to exercise its statutory duty in relation to the Examination. Regulation 17 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations requires a local planning authority, as soon as possible after the appointment of a person to carry out an examination, to send them the following:
· the plan proposal,
· the documents (including the Consultation Statement) and any other documents submitted to the local planning authority by the qualifying body in relation to the plan proposal (as set out in the Regulations), and
· a copy of any representations which have been made in accordance with Regulation 16 (i.e. any comments which are made in response to the current consultation)
The alternative option is for the Council not to respond to the Submission consultation. This is not recommended, as it is the final opportunity for the Council to comment on the Plan. It would also be in breach of the Council’s statutory responsibilities in respect of Neighbourhood Planning under Regulation 17 of the Regulations, which could expose the Council to legal challenge and attendant costs.
