Next Steps

Following the 8 week consultation extended due to the Christmas period, the representations will be collated and sent for independent examination. You may also request to be notified of the local planning authority’s decision under Regulation 19 (the outcome of the independent examination of the plan.) If the Examiner believes that the Neighbourhood Plan meets all of its requirements a referendum will take place which will allow residents to decide whether the Neighbourhood Plan should be used by the Council to determine planning applications in the Camelford area.
