Pre-examination consultation

Thrussington Parish Council, through the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group, prepared a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish.

Charnwood Borough Council considered the Plan against the statutory requirements set out in paragraph 6 of Schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) and was satisfied that these have been met and the plan could proceed to consultation.
