Adoption of the Ailsworth Neighbourhood Plan - NOV17/CAB/59

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED (unanimous) to recommend to Council:


1.    That following the successful referendum on 2 November 2017 the Ailsworth Neighbourhood Plan, as set out at Appendix A, be ‘made’ (which means to all intents and purposes ‘adopted’) and thereby form part of the Development Plan for Peterborough for the purpose of making decisions on relevant planning applications within Ailsworth Parish; and


2.    That the decision statement included at Appendix B be published.


Reasons for the decision:

This recommendation was made to be in accordance with the Localism Act 2011 and the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations (as amended).  The plan had been assessed by an independent examiner and officers agreed that the plan met the basic conditions and other requirements of legislation. As such, the Plan should be ‘made’ part of the Development Plan.


Alternative options considered:

The Council did not have alternative options given the content of the legislation and the content of the Ailsworth Neighbourhood Plan and the process followed in its production.
