Villagers now have their final chance to comment on the Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan, which has been prepared by Cottingham Parish Council with the help of the community and submitted to North Northamptonshire Council for publication.
Consultation on the Plan runs from Friday 27 August to 5pm on Friday 8 October 2021.
The Plan sets out detailed local planning policies to help shape and guide development within the designated neighbourhood plan area for Cottingham, which covers the whole of Cottingham Parish.
Previous consultation on the draft plan took place in November and December 2020, which has helped shape the plan to this final version.
This final stage of consultation is different to the previous consultation, because all comments should relate to whether the plan as submitted meets the “basic conditions” as set out within planning legislation. All comments received will be sent onto an independent Planning Inspector who will assess whether the plan has been prepared in accordance with the relevant Regulations.
The Neighbourhood Plan, supporting documents and details of how to respond, are available to view on the neighbourhood planning pages of the Council’s website. Hard copies are also available to view at Corby Library, The Corby Cube, Parkland Gateway, George Street, Corby, Northamptonshire NN17 1QG during normal opening times. Alternatively further information is available from Cottingham Parish Council’s website.
