The KNP elves have finished their tapping away at the keyboard and the full, 'Regulation 14' version of the Neighbourhood Plan is now available for download below:
So, what is Regulation 14?
Basically it is the first 'Official' consultation; so we've done surveys, posted articles and emailed various bits of information around to everyone but now we are on the road to becoming a full Neighbourhood Plan. First there is the 'Regulation 14' Consultation, the plan will be edited to reflect views/comments and feedback and then it will be sent to East Herts District Council who will then undertake 'Regulation 16' Consultation. Following that there is independent examination and finally a referendum; at which point the plan (if passed by a majority) will become part of the planning rules and regulations for Kingsmead. So, we've a bit of a way to do but this is a really big step.
So, what's the process?
Over the next week or so our volunteers will be delivering a summary version of the Neighbourhood Plan to every dwelling in Kingsmead. This all has to be completed before midnight on the 7th Nov as that is when the official consultation starts. If you want to get a sneak preview of the summary it is below and has all the details on the consultation process:
How does the consultation work?
The consultation will be open from midnight, 7th November 2021 to midnight, 20th December 2021 so the Survey Monkey page will not be open until then and paper copies cannot be accepted until midnight on the 7th November
Residents and businesses within Kingsmead plus other interested parties can respond by:
