Beaudesert & Henley-in-Arden
Neighbourhood Development Plan 2020
Regulation 14 Public Re-Consultation Notice
In accordance with Neighbourhoods Planning (General) Regulation 2012, Part 5, 14(a)-(c), notice is hereby given that a formal pre-submission public consultation on the Draft Beaudesert & Henley-in-Arden Neighbourhood Development Plan will start at 10.00 am on the 16th of July for a period of 6 weeks ending at 5.00 pm on the 27th of August 2020.
The Joint Parish Council is going out to re-consultation with all parties listed in this email, due to some minor changes on the original document submitted to SDC – i.e.
Page 11 – 8 Employment and Services Para 8.4
Delete the last sentence ‘The Town also has its own railway station’. This is already stated in Para 8.3 above.
Page 14 – 11 Policy. Policy H1- Housing Growth Para 1.
Change ‘shown in Figure 2’ to ‘shown in Figure 2 on Page 16’.
Page 21 – P3 Community Policy C2 – Designated Local Green Space. Bullet 6
Change ‘Green Belt and adjacent to allotment and A4189 Warwick Road’ to ‘Memorial Sports Ground’
Page 22 – P3 Community Policy c3 – Sports and Leisure Facilities Para 1
Removed the words ‘and the Warwickshire College (now closed)’
Page 22 – P3 Community Policy c3 – Sports and Leisure Facilities Explanation (inbox)
Replace the entire wording in the box to
Since the closure of Warwickshire College as an educational facility, the Sports facilities have been run as a self-supporting enterprise for the local Community. This facility ceased trading December 31st, 2019. The Sports Hall, Exercise Gymnasium, and all-weather pitch provided an excellent extra dimension for the leisure facilities of the Community and surrounding catchment area.
With the loss of this facility, the NDP supports the notion of replacing these facilities elsewhere within the Henley vicinity
Page 28 – 12 Community Aspirations. Project 1 – Car Parking Para 1
Change ‘To bring all car parks, notably The Croft, The Medical Centre and the ‘Northern’ car park under the control of the Parish Council’ to ‘To bring The Medical Centre and Northern car parks under the control of the Parish Council.
Once approved the Beaudesert & Henley-in-Arden Neighbourhood Development Plan (the NDP) will become part of the statutory planning framework alongside the Stratford on Avon District Council’s (SDC) Core strategy and therefore must be taken into account by SDC when determining planning applications and planning policy. It is, therefore, an important opportunity for residents to help shape the future.
The Draft Plan has been developed in close consultation with residents through household questionnaires, public meetings and invited views on possible proposals and policies. Before submitting the plan to SDC Beaudesert & Henley-in Arden Joint Parish Council invites comments on the Draft NDP [V8] to check that the Plan reflects residents’ views.
All responses received will be considered by the Joint Parish Council to form a revised version of the NDP. The revised version of the NDP will then be submitted to SDC as the Local Planning Authority, for consideration by them and by an independent examiner.
In readiness for a public presentation, copies of Version 8 of the draft NDP may be viewed on the JPC Website or e-mailed to residents on request to the JPC Clerk.
Paper copies will be made available, in limited quantities, if a resident has no other means of viewing the document electronically. Either by an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01564 637 607. A copy can be downloaded from the JPC Website located in the Policies & Plans drop-down menu.
FOR THOSE STILL AFFECTED BY COVID RESTRICTIONS OR NO ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, FULL & DETAILED ADVICE WILL BE PUBLISHED BY THE JPC IN THE RUN UP TO THE CLOSING DATE, SO THAT REPRESENTATIONS BY BEAUDESERT & HENLEY RESIDENTS CAN BE MADE TO THE JPC.
