Update 20 September 2019
Broadstairs & St Peters Neighbourhood Plan – Proposed Modifications
The Council proposed modifications to the Broadstairs & St Peters neighbourhood plan which it considered, together with the recommendations made by the Examiner in his report, will enable the neighbourhood plan to proceed to referendum.
Two of the designations of Local Green Spaces proposed in the neighbourhood plan are considered to be contrary to national policy and policies in the emerging Thanet Local Plan. The Council proposed modifications to the neighbourhood plan and carried out a six week consultation on these modifications. The consultation is now closed.
Update 22 August 2019
The Council has received the Examiner’s report and has considered the recommendations. The Council has also considered whether any modifications needed to be made to the Plan to meet the “basic conditions” for Neighbourhood Plans.
The Council supports the vast majority of the provisions of the Neighbourhood Plan
However, the Council is of the view that two of the proposed areas of local Green Space do not meet the criteria set out in the National Planning Policy Framework, and should not form part of the Neighbourhood Plan. The Council will therefore be consulting on proposed modifications to the Plan in this respect, before any referendum is undertaken.
This matter was considered by Cabinet on 25th July 2019, and the decision notice has been published.
Update 1 April 2019
It is anticipated that the consultation on the proposed modifications will take place immediately after the summer holidays.
