Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan has now been approved by an independent planning examiner and is almost complete.
The Examiner, Brian Dodd BA MPhil MRTPI, commented in his report that “a great amount of care, commitment and effort has gone into the production of the Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan, and that it is founded on a heartfelt desire to build a sustainable community with a high quality of life”.
The next step is a referendum, to be held 20 March 2014, where the residents of Sprowston will be able to vote on the question below, and if they would like the plan to create a framework against which planning applications will be assessed until 2026. The plan includes policies on important areas with the aim to maintain and improve the quality of life for people living and working in Sprowston and to ensure that new development is sympathetic to the existing.
The question which will be asked in the Referendum is: “Do you want Broadland District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Sprowston to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
A YES vote would mean that Broadland District Council must take the Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan into account when they decide on planning applications in the area.
A NO vote would mean that the Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan is not part of the Local Development Framework used to determine planning applications.
