As per regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, a consultation on the Neighbourhood Plan and accompanying documents was undertaken. This has now closed but the consultation ran from Thursday 25 January 2024 until Thursday 7 March 2024.

What happens next?

The Council will collect all comments made and provide these alongside the Neighbourhood Plan and accompanying documents to an appointed Neighbourhood Plan examiner, who will assess the Neighbourhood Plan and make one of three recommendations:

  • Refer it to be submitted for referendum; or
  • Refer it to be submitted for referendum subject to modifications; or
  • Refuse the plan

Subject to the plan being recommended to referendum, residents of Stainforth will be able to vote on whether they would like the Neighbourhood Plan to be used to help determine planning applications in the area. Should more than 50% of votes support this, the plan will be formally adopted by the City Council and form part of the development plan for Stainforth.
