What happens next?

  • 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.
