Thank you for your patience!
After a lot of effort by a lot of people, including those who have attended previous consultation events the draft of the Neighbourhood Plan has now been produced and we need your view as to whether you support the plan fully or would like to suggest a modification to a policy or policies.
Please take the time to read the full draft plan which is available by following this link and leave your comments using this short response form. Your comments are very important as this is a community driven plan which needs to be supported by those who live and work in the forum area.
The plan is supported by a number of additional documents which are available here.
The plan includes 25 policies which support the objectives, these were previously endorsed at consultation events. They are included in the full plan but you can also see them by following this link.
Unfortunately, as a result of the recently announced Covid lockdown it will not be possible to view the plan documents in the library. Please use the documents which are available on the website. If you would like additional help please let us know by contacting us.
The ability to prepare neighbourhood plans has come out of the Localism Act. They are a way for local communities to be closely involved in the decisions which affect them and their areas. The East Boldon Neighbourhood Plan has been developed to establish a vision for the village and to help deliver the local community’s aspirations and needs for the plan period 2020-2036. Once adopted, it is a statutory document that will be incorporated into the district planning framework and must be used by South Tyneside Council to determine planning applications.
It is important that you provide feedback on the plan. We hope that you can support what has been presented on behalf of the community by completing the short response form. If you have any comments or suggested modifications please put them next to the relevant planning policies (but please note that you do not need to make a comment against every one).
