Maidwell with Draughton Neighbourhood Developement Plan Consultation by DDC

Maidwell with Draughton Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group have now submitted the Plan to Daventry District Council. As the local planning authority they are now required to undertake a minimum six week consultation (extended to eight weeks due to the Christmas holiday) to provide an opportunity for all parties to comment on whether the submitted plan meets the basic conditions before it goes to examination. The basic conditions are that the plan:

The consultation commences on Monday 10th December 2018 and will close at 5pm on Monday 4th February 2019. We cannot guarantee that representations received after this date will be considered.
