What happens next?

It is a legal requirement that all comments are made available for public inspection, Therefore, your comments will not be confidential. Your name and comment will be visible but your contact and personal details will not be visible.

All comments will then be sent to an independent Neighbourhood Plan examiner who will carry out the examination.

Most neighbourhood plan examinations are examined through written representations, rather than the examiner holding a public examination meeting.

The examiner will check that the Plan meets the Basic Conditions and has been prepared properly.

Following the examination the examiner will issue their report, which could include recommended changes to the draft Neighbourhood Plan.
