Consultation process

Various amendments have been made to the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 which have simplified the process of designation, including removing the requirement to carry out public consultation on an area designation application where the application is made by the appropriate parish council and relates to an area which is the whole parish.  Report to be published before decision is made.
