“The Neighbourhood Plan has now gone through its first public consultation (thanks to all who responded), some changes have been made to the policies and we are now looking forward to the second (and final) consultation. This will be run by Tewkesbury Borough Council, who will put it on their website with an online form for comments. Further changes will then be made and the Plan will then go for Independent Examination, before the Referendum.
Watch out for the start of the second (Regulation 16) consultation and make sure you have your say”.
We have now received all of your responses to the Statutory Consultation – the Steering Group are meeting on 7th February 2019 to review all responses received in order to see if any further amendments/improvements to the Plan are necessary. The Plan will then be formally submitted to Tewkesbury Borough Council who will publicise the plan ( Regulation 16 ) and arrange for an examination by an Independent Examiner. This is to consider whether the neighbourhood plan meets the basic conditions and other legal requirements. If successful at the examination stage, with modifications if necessary, then the local authority will arrange for a neighbourhood plan referendum. If there is a majority yes vote, then the neighbourhood plan is made and becomes part of the statutory development plan for the area.
Thank you so much to all those who took part in our consultation : we value your ideas on how to shape the development of our community , now and in the future.

CHURCHDOWN & INNSWORTH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN.
At the end of 2017 the draft ‘Plan’ had been produced containing planning policies and a list of community actions – all based on information gathered during the Community Engagement in 2014 together with research by the Steering Group and reports from specialist consultants.
At the end of 2017 and start of 2018, the Steering group were looking at ways to ensure that concerns regarding traffic/road infrastructure, flooding, design and layout of housing and fibre optic installation were addressed as fully as possible. Final amendments , to incorporate the above policies and supporting evidence, were carried out in Spring 2018.
In June 2018, the Draft Neighbourhood Plan was approved by both Innsworth and Churchdown Parish Councils for submission to Tewkesbury Borough Council for Strategic Environmental Assessment. This process requires Tewkesbury Borough Council to liaise with a number of Statutory Organisations and is due to finish shortly.
The Steering Group are currently preparing for a 6 week statutory consultation on the Draft Plan which aims to collate as many responses from Residents as possible – this includes drafting a document detailing all the community engagement carried out to date and outlining how the Steering Group hope to achieve the widest possible consultation going forward.
We will be publishing details of how to respond to the consultation and dates of forthcoming events very shortly .
Your views are the key to the success of the plan . Please get in touch and let us know your thoughts
The Plan has now progressed to the stage where we have a Pre-Submission Draft (ie, it is almost ready to be submitted to Tewkesbury Borough Council” for Strategic Environmental Assessment, and then public consultation.
However, due to the importance of the issues of flooding and road infrastructure/congestion, it has been agreed to do further work on these matters. A brief is being drawn up for consultant reports. It is hoped to progress this work quite quickly and to be able to include policies in the Plan to cover these matters.
“On 9th February Churchdown Parish Council played host to members of Neighbourhood Plan Steering Groups from around the South West at the Locality Network Event. The evening was well supported and enjoyed by about 30 participants who heard presentations from Lorraine Hart of Locality, Dr Gemma Jerome of Gloucestershire Wild Service and Rupert Crosbee of Sustrans. For the specialist reports of GWS and Sustrans, supporting the Neighbourhood Plan, please look under Documents tab. The Steering Group are now working to finalise the Plan prior to submission to Tewkesbury Borough Council for Strategic Environmental Assessment.”
