Strete Neighbourhood Plan - Update

Following the Exploratory Meeting held at Strete Parish Hall on Tuesday 11th of June 2019 the examination of Strete Neighbourhood Plan is suspended for an initial period of 6 months from the date of the meeting to provide opportunity for the Neighbourhood Plan Group to meet and discuss the objection to the allocation of the Cox's Farm Field for residential development. At the end of the 6 month period the examiner will consult on the progress made with regard to Policies SNP 8 Development at Cox's Farm Field and SNP 9 Principal Residency Requirement and will consider whether to extend the period of suspension or recommence examination of the plan as submitted.

Strete Neighbourhood Plan


Examiner's procedural note:
Request for an Exploratory Meeting for the Strete Neighbourhood Development Plan.

From my examination of the plan and the representations made on it I have come to the view that I require an exploratory meeting in order to come to a reasoned conclusion on the extent to which the plan meets the basic conditions as set out in paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4B to the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (introduced by Schedule 10 of the Localism Act 2011)

More specifically I wish to explore in detail, with a representative of the Qualifying Body, South Hams District Council and a representative of the owner of Cox's Field regarding issues arising from the plan in connection with the delivery of housing across the plan period.

The exploratory meeting will commence at 2:00pm on Tuesday 11th of June 2019 at:-
Strete Parish Hall, Hynetown Road, Strete.
