Breadsall Parish – Neighbourhood Area Designation
Erewash Borough Council’s Planning Committee last night (Wednesday 21nd September 2016) approved Breadsall Parish Council’s application to designate a Neighbourhood Area covering the entirety of the Parish. The Borough Council’s designation of a Neighbourhood Area is a required first stage of the process which regulates Neighbourhood Plan formulation.
Regulation 7 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended by the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2015) requires the Borough Council to publicise the decision referred to above on its website. Additionally to this, the Borough Council must also a) indicate the name of the Neighbourhood Area, b) a map identifying the area, and c) state the name of the body who applied for the designation. This information can be found below:
a) Breadsall Parish Neighbourhood Area
c) Breadsall Parish Council.
A copy of the agenda for the Planning Committee at which the designation was approved is available to view here.
Breadsall Parish – Neighbourhood Area Application
The Borough Council has received an application from Breadsall Parish Council under powers created by the Localism Act (2011) (amending the Town and Country Planning Act (1990)) to designate a Neighbourhood Area covering the Parish area of Breadsall. This is with a longer term intention of producing a Neighbourhood Plan for the area.
In line with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (and 2015 Amendments), the submitting body are required as part of their Area Application to provide to Erewash Borough Council (‘the local planning authority) the following information:
- A map which identifies the area to which the application relates;
- A statement explaining why this area is considered appropriate to be designated as a neighbourhood area; and
- A statement that the organisation or body making the area application is a relevant body for the purposes of section 61G of the 1990 Act referred to above.
The application received by the Borough Council includes all required information. The next step is for the Council as required by Regulation 6 of the 2012 Regulations to publicise the following on its website, and in such other manner as they consider is likely to bring the area application to the attention of people who live, work or carry on business in the area to which the application relates:
- A copy of the area application
- Details of how to make representations; and
- The date by which those representations must be received, being not less than 4 weeks from the date on which the area application is first publicised.
The application from Breadsall Parish Council can be found here.
A map of the proposed Neighbourhood Area can be found here.
A representation form to make comments on the Neighbourhood is available to download here.
Erewash Borough Council,
Long Eaton Town Hall,
Consultation will run from Tuesday 9 August to Tuesday 6 September 2016.
To ensure details are publicised within the proposed Neighbourhood Area, copies of the application form and representation forms will also be available to inspect at locations within Breadsall, as well as Long Eaton & Ilkeston Town Halls. These locations will be confirmed in due course.
