Next steps for the Steering Group and the appointed Consultant
Updated November 2021
By November 2021 the steering group had finalised a draft of what is called the regulation 14 consultation of the Neighbourhood Plan. This has been submitted to TWBC who will screen it on our behalf to see if an environmental assessment is required. They will also comment and offer advice on the various policies within the document.
The next step after this will be to hold a formal six week consultation with the residents of Paddock Wood which will take place early in 2022.
Please remember the Neighbourhood Plan cannot change the scale of growth in the Local Plan but it can help shape what this new growth will look like and how it will benefit existing and new residents and businesses.
