Strete Neighbourhood Plan - Suspension Update

Following a suggestion from Mr Dixon of Savills for an extension to the suspension period until the end of April 2020 a request was submitted to the Examiner, Ms D. McCann.
The extension was suggested to enable Mr Dixon sufficient time to undertake a detailed viability analysis on the policy word change proposals submitted.

On 13/01/2020 Ms D McCann – Examiner for Strete Neighbourhood Plan formally agreed to an extension with the following:
On the basis that the Neighbourhood Plan Group feel that the outstanding issues can be resolved satisfactorily by the end of April 2020, I am prepared to suspend my examination for a further period until 30th of April 2020.
I am, however, not in a position to extend beyond that date.
It will be necessary to ensure that this revised timescale is publicised on South Hams District Council website and any other interested parties are informed.

Strete Neighbourhood Plan - Suspension Update

From: Deborah McCann
Sent: 09 December 2019 10:32
To: Duncan Smith
Subject: Re: Suspension of the examination of the Strete Neighbourhood Development Plan

Dear Mr Smith
Following the suspension of my examination of the Strete NDP for an initial period of 6 months, I understand that it would be helpful if the suspension could be extended to the 31st of January 2020 to enable the negotiations regarding Policies SNP8: Development at Cox's Farm Field and SNP9: Principal Residency Requirement to come to a conclusion. I agree to the further extension to the 31st January 2020.
Kind regards

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.
