Burton Overy Neighbourhood Plan
Draft Plan - November 2017

Consultation closes 14th January 2018

The Parish Council has produced the Burton Overy Neighbourhood Plan with assistance from an Advisory Committee including Parish Council members, community volunteers, and interested individuals in the community and help from the District Council and other agencies.
The Neighbourhood Plan will form the basis for planning decisions applicable to Burton Overy Parish, up to 2031, together with the policies in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), which embrace the whole of the country and the Local Plan for Harborough District which covers the area controlled by the District Council. It is the District Council as the Local Planning Authority who will continue to determine planning applications but they will have to consider the policies in the Neighbourhood Plan when reaching their decision.

You, as a resident, and other interested parties, are now invited to read the Draft Plan and make comments. There will be a seven-week period to do this (the statutory six-week period has been extended to take into account the Christmas holiday period), commencing on 27 November 2017 and closing on 14 January 2018. Wherever possible, please ensure that you specify the policy or paragraph to which your response relates.
