Boughton Monchelsea Parish Council
Boughton Monchelsea Neighbourhood Plan
Over the last few years local people have been helping shape the future of the parish through the development of a Neighbourhood Plan for Boughton Monchelsea.
A formal consultation on the Neighbourhood Plan (which includes a landscape masterplan and management plan) took place between April and June 2019 and the plan has been amended as a result of comments made. Further progress will be made in line with national regulations and the next step is submission to MBC. They will check the document for compliance and then arrange and carry out a further formal consultation. An independent Examiner will then be appointed who will review the documents and issue a final report. Any final changes to the plan will then be made and MBC will organise a referendum. A simple majority in favour would mean that the plan is adopted and becomes part of the development plan used by MBC to make planning decisions. We are working towards formal adoption of the plan in 2020 and will continue to keep you updated on progress
You can view the draft neighbourhood plan below.
On behalf of the Parish Council I would like to thank you for your input to date and hope we can rely on your continued support in getting our Neighbourhood Plan adopted, thus allowing us to properly influence and manage any future development in our parish.
Cllr Doug Smith
Chairman of Boughton Monchelsea Parish Council Planning Committee
