Regulation 14

Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 14 Consultation

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. It helps determine where new homes, shops and offices can be built, what those new buildings will look like, and what infrastructure should be provided to meet their community’s needs, in alignment with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

Formal public consultation on the draft Barton-le-Clay Neighbourhood Plan (known as Regulation 14) in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012 will start on Friday 26th April 2024 for a 6-week period, ending at midnight on Friday 7th June 2024.

The Draft Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents can be viewed below.

Please be aware that we will not accept comments that are anonymous, irrelevant to the content of the draft Neighbourhood Plan, racist, abusive, or libellous. Any comments you make will be made publicly available however, your personal details will not be referenced and will only be used for validation purposes.

About the Plan

Over the past few years, the Barton-le-Clay Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, with the assistance of the Parish Council, has undertaken initial consultation, gathered background evidence and appointed consultants to assist in the creation of this draft Neighbourhood Plan. We will be consulting with statutory consultees, local businesses, people living or working in Barton-le-Clay and those in the neighbouring areas. Following revision to reflect consultation responses, it is envisaged that the Barton-le-Clay Neighbourhood Plan will be submitted to Central Bedfordshire Council and it is anticipated that a local referendum will be held soon after.
