Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Buerton Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNDP) was submitted to the Council in June 2017 and, following a statutory publicity period, proceeded to Independent Examination.  The Examiner’s report has now been received and recommends that, subject to some modifications, the Plan should proceed to referendum.

The Council must now consider the recommendations of the Examiner and decide how to proceed.

The Council is committed to supporting neighbourhood planning in Cheshire East.  It has a legal duty to provide advice and assistance on neighbourhood plans, to hold an independent examination on neighbourhood plans submitted to the Council and to make arrangements for a referendum following a favourable Examiner’s Report. 

Subject to the modifications set out in the Examiner’s Report, the BNDP is considered to meet the statutory basic conditions and procedural requirements set out in Schedule 10, paragraph 8, of the Localism Act and as such it can now proceed to referendum.




That approval be given to the Examiner’s recommendations to make modifications to the Buerton Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNDP), as set out in the Examiner’s Report and it be confirmed that it will now proceed to referendum in the Buerton Neighbourhood Plan area.
