Neighbourhood Plan: I was going to say that I will be going along to the Parish Council meeting this evening (7.30 pm in the Pavilion) to get an update on where we are with the Plan but I already know! I was walking past the Spar at the weekend and glanced at the Parish Notice Board and saw the notice from Mid Sussex District Council announcing that they had published the submitted Plan “for consultation in accordance with Part 5 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012” and that the consultation will run from 19 November 2018 until 14 January 2019! We are getting closer to the finish line! It went on to say that “representations made on the Slaugham NDP will be considered by an independent examiner who will assess whether the NDP meets certain legal requirements, known as the ‘basic conditions’. It then goes on to list the various documents that have been submitted as part of the Plan. If you would like to know more and have access to a computer, if you go to the MSDC website on the link https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/planning-building/neighbourhood-plans/ and click on Slaugham, you will find full details of what has been submitted. You will be directed to the parish website for details of the background to the Plan and finally, information on how you can register your comments online, by email or post. If you don’t have access to a computer and would like to have a read of the Plan, guess where to find a copy locally – yes, the Hardware Shop! Where would we be without Les, Christina and the rest of the team that work in the Shop! You should note that if you want to register your comments, you have until midnight on 14 January 2019. As I said earlier, the finish line is almost in sight, let’s hope we can get over it this time!
