Croxton Neighbourhood Plan - Plan Area Designation & Croxton, Kilverstone & Brettenham Neighbourhood Plan - Plan Area Designation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To consider any strategic issues or consultation responses and to formally designate the Croxton, Kilverstone and Brettenham Neighbourhood Plan area.

Decision:

RESOLVED that:

 

1)     the amended Croxton, Kilverstone and Brettenham Neighbourhood Plan areas as shown at Appendix B of the report be endorsed; and

 

2)     the single Croxton Neighbourhood Plan area be rejected.

Reasons for the decision:

It is recommended that Cabinet endorses Option 1. This is due to the fact that the proposed boundary is considered appropriate to be designated without modification.

 

An amended boundary could be designated that reflects the joint Croxton, Kilverstone and Brettenham submission with the exception of land falling within the Thetford Urban Extension. However, this is not recommended as it is considered that the potential for any strategic concerns to be mitigated through positive engagement with the Council and the promoters of the Sustainable Urban Extension.

 

Endorsing a single Croxton Neighbourhood area would result in a disjointed approach to future policy affecting the Urban Extension and inhibit the ability of a joint Neighbourhood Plan covering the three parishes to be identified

Alternative options considered:

Option 1

 

To consider the content of this report confirms the joint Neighbourhood Plan area as submitted by Croxton, Kilverstone and Brettenham Parish Councils as set out at Appendix A and reject the single Croxton Neighbourhood Plan area.

 

Option 2

 

To consider the content of this report and confirm an amended joint Neighbourhood Plan area of Croxton, Kilverstone and Brettenham excluding land identified as part of the Thetford Sustainable Urban Extension and reject single Croxton Neighbourhood Plan area.
