Neighbourhood Plan – September 2018 Update

The Public Consultation period has now passed and we are very grateful to all those who took the time to complete the questionnaire. The queries raised have all been reviewed and many of you raised the same issues. These issues have now been drawn together and, we hope, answered in an update of the Frequently Asked Questions which can be found by clicking: FAQs – June – 2018 consultation.

The Plan has also been amended to take into account some of the points raised and it has now been forwarded to Purbeck District Council who will begin their statutory 6 week consultation period during the coming week. This will give everyone another chance to comment should they wish to do so.

The final version of the Neighbourhood Plan can be found here:
Bere Regis Neighbourhood Plan Final Version (September 2018)

The Supporting Evidence shown below is provided in conjunction with the final version of the Neighbourhood Plan. It has been updated in line with the changes made to the Neighbourhood Plan, following the consultation period in June 2018.

Neighbourhood Plan – June 2018 Consultation

This Supporting Evidence has now been superseded. Please see the Main Neighbourhood Plan Page for the latest documents and updates.

We have now begun the 6 week period for Public Consultation on the final draft version of our Neighbourhood Plan. The final draft plan can be found below:

Our consultation event is being held on Saturday, 23rd June where you can come along and see paper copies of the final draft plan and discuss this with councillors. A questionnaire will be available to complete on the day. Alternatively it can be completed online here:

Once the 6 week public consultation has finished, we will make any minor changes to the Plan as required before it’s then submitted to Purbeck District Council for their approval. This is all leading up to a Parish Referendum on accepting the Neighbourhood Plan which will hopefully take place in May 2019, to coincide with Local Elections for the new Unitary Authority.
