Decision:

That:

 

1        approval be given to the Examiner’s recommendations to make modifications to the Willaston Neighbourhood Plan, as set out in the Examiner’s Report, and it be confirmed that it will now proceed to referendum in the Willaston Neighbourhood Plan area; and

 

2        the housing supply figures in the neighbourhood plan be updated to reflect the most up to date position.

Minutes:

The Willaston Neighbourhood Development Plan (BNDP) had been submitted to the Council in June 2017 and, following a statutory publicity period, proceeded to Independent Examination.  The Examiner’s report had been received and it is recommended that, subject to some minor modifications, it should proceed to referendum.

 

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 was 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 could now proceed to referendum.

 

RESOLVED

 

That:

 

1.    Approval be given to the Examiner’s recommendations to make modifications to the Willaston Neighbourhood Development Plan, as set out in the Examiner’s report attached as Appendix 1 of the report, and it be confirmed that it will now proceed to referendum in the Willaston Neighbourhood Plan area;
