What's happening next?
The Plan would normally proceed to referendum following the publication of the Decision Statement but as a result of Covid-19 the referendum will be delayed, in accordance with the Local Government and Police and Crime Commissioner (Coronavirus) (Postponement of Elections and Referendums)(England and Wales)Regulations 2020 (external website) until 6th May 2021. In the meantime, the Great and Little Kimble-cum-Marsh Neighbourhood Plan will have ‘significant weight’ in decision making.
The Referendum Version of the Great and Little Kimble-cum Marsh Neighbourhood Plan is the version that should be used for decision making in the Parish. This version incorporates the proposed modifications, as suggested by the Examiner and agreed by both the Council and the Great and Little Kimble cum-Marsh Parish Council.
