Ashby de la Zouch Neighbourhood Plan
Decision Maker: Strategic Director of Place
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
Whether to make the Ashby de la Zouch
Reasons for the decision:
A referendum on 22 November 2018
overwhelmingly supported using the Ashby Neighbourhood Plan to make
planning decisions in Ashby. Before this can be enacted the
District Council is required to consider whether to 'make' the plan
A report to the Council’s Cabinet on 14 March 17 recommended (and was accepted that):
IF THE MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO VOTED IN THE REFERENDUM ARE IN FAVOUR OF THE ASHBY NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN AND THE DISTRICT COUNCIL DOES NOT CONSIDER THE MAKNG OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN TO BE INCOMPATIBLE WITH ANY EU OR HUMAN RIGHTS OBLIGATIONS, THE ASHBY NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN MUST BE MADE BY THE DISTRICT COUNCIL WITHIN EIGHT WEEKS OF THE REFERENDUM. THIS WILL TAKE PLACE BY WAY OF DELEGATED AUTHORITY
The Examiner’s Report assesses issues relating to compatibility with EU and Human Rights Obligations (as referred to in the above recommendation) and concludes that the plan meets these. It is considered that this conclusion is correct.
Alternative options considered:
Whether the plan should be made or not. There
is no valid reason to not make the plan bearing in mind it ahs been
subject to an independent Examination.
