Following an independent examination and a positive referendum result, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council have decided to formally ‘make’ the Sheepy Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Sheepy Parish Neighbourhood Plan now forms part of the Development Plan for Hinckley and Bosworth and the policies in the plan will be given full weight when assessing planning applications that affect land covered by the plan. Attached is a copy of the Formal Decision Statement and this will be available on the Borough Council’s Website and the Hinckley Hub to view.
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in preparing the Neighbourhood Plan, it takes a lot of commitment for these documents to be ‘made’ and all those involved have spent a considerable amount of time to get the document to this stage. The Neighbourhood Plan had a positive majority vote, with over 90% voting ‘yes’ which is higher than the national average and a reflection of the groups hard work.
