Benenden Neighbourhood Plan: Regulation 14 consultation is now closed

Consultation is now closed

Consultation on our 'Regulation 14' draft of Benenden's Neighbourhood Plan opened on 25th August 2019.   We extended the consultation period to run until 31 October, and we have recieved feedback from parishioners, other stakeholders, and various statutory bodies.

Regulation 14 consultation, the first formal stage of consultation, opened 25th August 2019.  It followed a launch of our first Rough Draft in February 2019 at a Parish Meeting attended by over 130 villagers, and a 6 week consultation period which closed in early April.  We reviewed the plan following the consultation and made changes as a result of your input.  

The Regulation 14 Plan, and supporting documents were posted on our website, and promoted via the Parish Magazine and notices on Parish Noticeboards, an email to subscribers, and in the Community Shop.

The statutory consultation period is 6 weeks, and consultation was due to close on 11th October.  We extended the consultation period to run until 31st October 2019 as the production of hard copies of the Plan was delayed.  Hard copies of the Plan itself were made available in the Parish Office and via the Shop, and copies of the supporting documents were available for parishioners.

Formal consultation has now closed.  You can still find a copy of the draft Regulation 14 Plan Benenden Neighbourhood Plan on our website, or borrow a hard copy version from the Parish Office.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time and effort to read the Plan and supporting documents and who has taken the time and trouble to provide feedback.  We will now start to review all the input from villagers, statutory bodies, and other stakeholders and make adjustments to the Plan as appropriate.  We'll publish an outline plan for the next stages, which will include further consultation, shortly.
