Baldock, Bygrave and Clothall Neighbourhood Plan

Consultation on the submission Neighbourhood Plan - Regulation 16

Consultation on the submission version of the Baldock, Bygrave and Clothall Neighbourhood Plan has now finished. You can view all the comments here. We will now work with the Parish Council to appoint an examiner for the neighbourhood plan.

The Examiner will be testing whether the plan meets the basic conditions and other legal requirements. The neighbourhood plan examination is different to a local plan examination in that the examiner is not testing the “soundness” of the plan or looking at other material considerations. It is anticipated that the examination will be held without a public hearing but by the way of written representations. However, an examiner may choose to hold a public hearing if they consider that is necessary.
