Following the public consultation process (Reg. 14) on the Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan Review, the Plan will be amended and submitted to Herefordshire Council together with supporting documentation, including a Basic Conditions Statement demonstrating how the NDP Review meets the required Basic Conditions, and a Consultation Statement setting out who has been consulted, how the consultation has been undertaken and how the representations received have informed the revised Plan.

Herefordshire Council will then re-consult, before subjecting the revised NDP to an Examination by an independent Examiner. If the Examiner is satisfied that, subject to any recommended changes, the revised NDP meets the required Basic Conditions, it may then be subject to a local Referendum. Should there be a referendum, if there is a ‘Yes’ vote, then the NDP Review will be made (adopted) by Herefordshire Council and used to help determine planning applications in the Parish.
