The Council has recently received an application for the designation of a neighbourhood area from Waltham Abbey Town Council as the first stage in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan. Local Planning Authorities such as Epping Forest District Council are required ato 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. The proposed area follows the parish boundary.
Why we consulted
Neighbourhood planning is a right for communities introduced through the Localism Act 2011. Communities can shape development in their areas through the production of Neighbourhood Development Plans. The designation of a Neighbourhood Plan area is a pre-requisite of producing a Neighbourhood Plan. Local Planning Authorities such as Epping Forest District Council are required to publicise applications for are designation on their websites and invite representations on the proposed Neighbourhood Plan Area for a period of at least 4 weeks. The consultation commenced on 12 January 2016 and ran for 4 weeks. The Council considered representations received prior to making a decision on the designation of the neighbourhood area.
