Alrewas Parish Council has submitted a Neighbourhood Plan to Lichfield District Council, becoming the seventh community within Lichfield District to reach this stage of the process.
The Alrewas Neighbourhood Plan outlines how the area could be shaped in the future and, if approved, it will provide a framework for development that will form part of Lichfield District Council’s Local Plan.
Lichfield District Council is now holding a six-week consultation so local people, organisations and agencies can see the Alrewas Neighbourhood Plan and give their views.
The district council will then collate all the comments and pass them on to an independent examiner. The examiner will look at the comments and the Neighbourhood Plan when assessing whether it meets national requirements and can proceed to the next stage of the process, which is a referendum within the neighbourhood area.
Councillor Ian Pritchard, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, Environment & Development Services for Lichfield District Council, said:
“Well done to everyone who has worked on this plan. It’s a great achievement to have got it this far in the process and we look forward to receiving comments throughout the consultation.”
The opportunity to comment on the Alrewas Neighbourhood Plan is running from Friday 5 January to 5pm on Friday 16 February 2018.
