Regulation 16 Consultation

Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Rolleston on Dove Parish Council has submitted its draft Neighbourhood Development Plan (Neighbourhood Plan) to East Staffordshire Borough Council.  In accordance with Regulation 16, the Borough Council would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on the submitted Neighbourhood Plan.  The consultation period lasts 6 weeks and runs from Friday 15th March 2019 to Wednesday 1st May 2019 at 5pm.

The Neighbourhood Plan, written by a group made up of members from the community proposes a number of policies on design and Local Green Spaces, amongst others.   

The Neighbourhood Development Plan submission is split into the following documents:

It is the responsibility of the Borough Council to collate all the representations and pass them on to an independent examiner, who will look at them and the Plan documents when assessing whether the plan meets the legislation and can therefore proceed to referendum.

Hard copies of the plan can be found at:

  • Customer service Centre, Burton Market Place
  • Burton Library
  • Burton Town Hall

Comments can be made by filling in the representation form and emailing it to the Neighbourhood Planning Team: neighbourhoodplanning@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk

Or sending it by post to: Neighbourhood Planning, Town Hall, King Edward Place, Burton on Trent, DE14 2EB

If you wish to be notified of the Council’s decision on the plan proposal then please state this in your representation.
