After weeks of silence: I am now able to update you on the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan! During the last month or so things have been moving apace with the Plan to such an extent that a copy has now been sent to Mid Sussex District Council for their comments prior to it being released to the Parish for our pre-submission review and comments! ‘Pre-submission’ in this instance means before it is submitted to an Inspector for review and being passed fit and proper to be put to the vote by the parish. The Committee is hopeful that they will be able to upload it to the website late August/early September and we will then have six weeks to read and comment upon it. As soon as I have any further information as to when this is likely to happen, I will of course let you know. I would say that if you went to the exhibition a couple of months ago, you will have seen a lot of what is in the Plan already but it is sincerely hoped that this time round the contents will be less contentious as we have been better informed of what has been going on and we should be in a position later in the year/early next year a the latest to vote on it - fingers crossed!
