The story so far...
In December 2015, Broughton Parish Council agreed to apply to Preston City Council that the area of Broughton Parish be designated a Neighbourhood Area, enabling a Neighbourhood Plan to be prepared by the local community for that area.
After a lengthy period of research, community consultation drafting and reviewing - led by a local Steering Group - Broughton Neighbourhood Development Plan was formally submitted to Preston City Council on 14th March 2017, for review by an Independent Examiner. The Independent Examiner's first report was received on the 9th September 2017, which recommended revisions be made to Policy RES1, before submission for a further independent examination.
Preston City Council and Broughton Parish Council acted on the Independent Examiner's report and the plan was amended where recommended and re-submitted to Preston City Council in October 2017. This document was then superceded by a further revised version, submitted in February 2018. This February version (and associated documents) is available to download below.
Update - July 2018
The Steering Group for the Neighbourhood Plan is delighted to announce that the Independent Examiner has now accepted the revised plan. The second Independent Examiners report is available here. The final version of the Neighbourhood Plan, with his advised revisions, will be published here soon.
