Plan Completion

Decisions on planning applications will be made using both the Local Plan and the Neighbourhood Plan. Once the Plan is made, the community may decide to make an update during the 15 year period if the Neighbourhood Plan conflicts with a new council plan (Local Plan) or if it becomes outdated.

Monitoring the Plan

The implementation of the completed Plan will need to be monitored and progress will need to be measured to ensure objectives are met. It will be for the local community to agree a successor body to monitor, implement and review the NP through a neighbourhood organisation which is fully representative of homeowners and tenants and all parts of the designated Neighbourhood Area.
