West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine revised neighbourhood plan

West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine parishes submitted a Revised Neighbourhood Plan to Somerset West and Taunton Council (SWT). The Plan sets out a vision for the future and policies which may be used to determine planning applications in the Neighbourhood Plan Area.

In accordance with the legal requirements for Neighbourhood Plans, SWT consulted on the Revised West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine Neighbourhood Plan for six weeks, from Friday, 5 November 2021 to Friday, 17 December 2021.

Somerset West and Taunton Council in conjunction with West Monkton and Cheddon Fitzpaine Parish Councils has appointed Ann Skippers to examine the Revised Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The representations from the Regulation 16 Consultation and Revised Neighbourhood Development Plan (RNDP) submission documents have been passed onto the Independent Examiner. It is for the Independent Examiner to set the timescale, scope and form of the Examination.

As part of the Examination the Independent Examiner will assess whether the respective RNDP complies with the legislation and whether it needs to progress to referenda and ultimately be capable of adoption as local planning policy.
