Following North Kesteven District Council's recent decision that the Neighbourhood Plan does not require a full Strategic Environmental Assessment, we are now in a position to begin the formal six-week public consultation. This will begin on 19th September and conclude on 30th October, 2016.

A copy of the full Plan can be viewed at:

Each household in Nocton and Potterhanworth will shortly be receiving a letter explaining more about the consultation process and the different ways in which comments can be made. The letter will include a Consultation Response Form which can be used to submit comments. Copies of the letter and response form can be found and downloaded from either of the Parish Council's websites.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE  KNOW WHAT RESIDENTS AND OTHERS THINK ABOUT THE PLAN. SO, PLEASE, DO LET US HAVE YOUR COMMENTS.

If you would like to find out more about our Neighbourhood Plan before making your comments, then you may also wish to attend one of the following consultation events where someone will be on hand to answer any questions you may have (all events are open to residents of both villages):
 
Nocton Village Hall                Saturday, 1st October from 10.00 a.m. until 12.00 noon
Potterhanworth Pavilion         Saturday, 8th October from 10.00 a.m. until 12.00 noon
Nocton Parish Church             Friday, 21st October from 2.00 p.m. until 4.00 p.m.
Potterhanworth Pavilion         Wednesday, 26th October from 7.00 p.m. until 8.30 p.m.

In addition to consulting with residents, we are also seeking the views of a wide range of businesses, land owners, agencies and other local groups and organisations who have a close association or relationship with the villages.

At the conclusion of the consultation period, we will analyse all of the comments received and make any necessary changes to the Plan before sending it to NKDC for the next stage of the process. This will involve an independent inspection by a Planning Professional prior to the local referendum.

Ian Goldsworthy
Chair of Nocton Parish Council
