Thurcaston and Cropston Neighbourhood Examiner's Report

On August 24, 2016 the Examiner submitted his report to the Borough Council.  The Report finds the plan capable of being ‘made’ subject to a number of recommended modifications and a successful referendum.

Officers have reviewed the Examiner’s recommendations and are in agreement that all the modifications should be made before the plan is subjected to a referendum. The Parish Council formally accepted the modifications at their meeting on September 16, 2016.

The Council must prepare a “decision statement” setting out that we are satisfied that the basic conditions have been met and that we are happy for the Plan to proceed to referendum.  Once we have taken this decision we must also publish the decision statement and the Examiner’s Report together with details of where and when they can be inspected.

The Borough Council considers that the Thurcaston and Cropston Neighbourhood Plan, as modified to incorporate the Examiner’s recommendations, should proceed to referendum. The date on which the referendum took take place was November 24, 2016.
