Description

This consultation is closed.

The designation was agreed with one small exception. The results can be found in the Local Neighbourhood Area Plans section on the Council's website. 

 

Background

The Council has recently received an application for the designation of a neighbourhood area from Epping Upland Parish Council as the first stage in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan.  Neighbourhood planning was introduced as part of the Localism Act 2011. It enables town/parish councils and neighbourhood forums to actively participate in plan making by preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP).  Local Planning Authorities such as Epping Forest District Council are required to publicise applications for area designation on their websites and invite representations on the proposed Neighbourhood Plan Area for a period of at least 4 weeks where the area to which the application relates is the whole of the area of a parish council and is wholly within the area of one local planning authority.  The proposed area follows the parish boundary.  The consultation commences on 17 August 2015 and will run for 4 weeks until 5pm on 14 September 2015. The Council will consider any representations received prior to making a decision on the designation of the neighbourhood area.

Why we consulted

For parish or town councils or prospective neighbourhood forums, work on a Neighbourhood Plan can only commence formally when the neighbourhood area has been designated by the local authority.  Local Planning Authorities such as Epping Forest District Council are required to publicise applications for area designation on their websites and invite representations on the proposed Neighbourhood Plan Area for a period of at least 4 weeks where the area to which the application relates is the whole of the area of a parish council and is wholly within the area of one local planning authority.  Representations made during this consultation will help the District Council to determine whether or not the proposed Neighbourhood Area should be designated.
