Neighbourhood Plan – final version

Hackbridge & Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Plan (warning, large file size)

What happens next?

  • Sutton Council will provide public consultation on the plan for 6 weeks.  (A start date yet to be agreed).  This gives everyone another opportunity to comment on the plan and read the changes.
  • An independent examiner will be agreed between the NDG and Sutton Council and any comments from the consultation will be sent to this independent examiner.
  • Our neighbourhood plan will then be reviewed by the independent examiner who will consider all comments and whether it meets the basic conditions and is in conformity.
  • If all goes well at examination, a referendum will take place where residents can vote on our plan.
  • If more than 50% of votes are yes, Sutton Council will bring our plan into legal force.

Other versions of the plan

Pre-submission Draft Neighbourhood Plan
This version of the plan was used for the public consultation which took place between 29 February and 22 April 2016.  See Appendix 13 & 14 for in-depth information on the feedback.

Updated plan for Sutton Council Screening
This version includes feedback from the public consultation and was submitted to Sutton Council for a screening process to see whether it needs an Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA).  The plan did not require an SEA and the feedback can be seen in Appendix 16 above.
