Holmes Chapel parish council have decided that they should produce a Neighbourhood Plan – and to seek the views of neighbouring parishes. GPC are to discuss the possibility on Dec9th at their next meeting:
Extract from HCPC minutes of 6th Nov 2014……
“There was discussion on the need for the parish to create a Neighbourhood Plan especially in view of the difficulties CEC was experiencing in having its Local Plan approved by the Planning Inspectorate. It was recognised that preparation of such a plan would be complex and time consuming and that the views of neighbouring parishes would be significant. It was pointed out that grant funding through CEC was available.
RESOLVED (c14/15/54) that
- the clerk informs CEC that HCPC wishes to proceed with the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan and that grant funding is required.
- neighbouring parishes are contacted to seek their views
a speaker be sought to explain in detail the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan.”
