Gamlingay’s Neighbourhood Plan – the Reg. 14 Pre-submission Consultation

Consultation during September – October 2020 on Gamlingay’s draft Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group hopes to launch a formal consultation on the draft plan from 7th September for six weeks. All residents and businesses will be able to view the complete draft Neighbourhood Plan and provide feedback. This is a formal and important stage within the neighbourhood planning regulations and is known as ‘Regulation 14 Pre-submission Consultation’. Essentially, everyone in the parish will have the opportunity to comment on the Plan before it is submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council for examination. 

A booklet summarising the Plan will be sent to every household in September and there will be a series of consultation events at the Eco Hub where you can come and ask any questions you may have about it. All information, including the plan in full, will be made available on the website, gamlingay-future.uk, with paper copies of the plan available at the Eco Hub. The Steering Group plans to attend the Gamlingay Village Show on 19th September. The latest Government guidance on social distancing will be taken into account in our plans for this consultation. Dates when you can talk members of the Steering Group about the Plan are listed below:

After the Consultation, the Steering Group will consider all comments received, and make any changes necessary.

At this point the Plan will enter its final stage, which will result in a referendum. All Gamlingay residents will be asked to vote, Yes or No, for the Plan to be adopted. We anticipate that this vote will take place in late 2021.

Please keep an eye out for further information in September including the Summary booklets coming through your letterbox! Do take a look at the website, gamlingay-future.uk, in the meantime and if you have any questions, please contact Kirstin Rayner, Neighbourhood Plan Secretary, (01767) 650310, clerk@gamlingay-pc.gov.uk.
