The Neighbhourhood Plan website has a FAQ section with questions and answers but there doesn’t seem to be any feedback facility, so we are re-posting some of the questions here – discussions welcome.
Title: Why did the June 2013 exhibition not address any financial aspects of the Creek Neighbourhood Plan?
Date Posted: 30 06 2013
The financial case for any development options around the creek were not addressed as part of the exhibition. This is because the illustrations of possible developments shown were not firm options for what should happen. The drawings showed illustrations of what could be developed based on the discussions with the landowners and the responses to earlier consultation in particular the Consensus Building Workshop held in November 2012. The Pre-submission draft of the Creek Neighbourhood Plan has not been written yet but is expected to be prepared this autumn. After a six-week period of consultation, this will be amended taking the consultation into account to form the Submission Draft. The financial appraisal/viability appraisal will be prepared at this stage by consultants advising Swale Council.
