Fordham Neighbourhood Plan Examination: Council's Decision September 2018
In July and August 2018, the Draft Fordham Neighbourhood Plan was examined by an independent examiner. The examiner concluded that, subject to a small number of modifications, the plan meets the basic conditions and other legal requirements and may proceed to referendum. The Council's Decision Statement, Examiner's Report and referendum version of the Neighbourhood Plan are availble to download below.
For further information please visit the Fordham Neighbourhood Plan page. A paper copy of the Fordham Neighbourhood Plan (referendum version) is available for inspection at East Cambridgeshire District Council's Customer Service Centre at The Grange, Nutholt Lane, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB7 4EE.
Details of the forthcoming referendum will be provided on the Council's website in due course.
About Neighbourhood Planning
Neighbourhood Planning is a new option for communities to decide the future of the places where they live. Neighbourhood Planning can include a number of planning documents prepared by local communities:
- Neighbourhood Development Plans
- Neighbourhood Development Orders (NDO)
- Community Right to Build Order (CRtBO)
Neighbourhood Plans, NDOs and CRtBOs can be used to add more detail to the policies in the Council’s plans, or cover other aspects appropriate to the aspirations of the community living in the area.
Once ‘made’ by the Council, the Neighbourhood Plan, NDO or CRtBO will form part of the Development Plan for East Cambridgeshire and will be used in determining planning applications in the area.
