REASONS FOR DECISION
1) The examiner’s recommendations will ensure the Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Plan is clear and effective as a framework for making decisions on planning applications in the Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Area. They address the concerns raised by the council and other stakeholders, and ensure the plan meets the basic conditions prescribed by legislation.
2) Before a neighbourhood plan can be made, it is a statutory requirement that it is first subject to a referendum (and two for areas that are designated as business neighbourhood areas). Before this happens, the council must publish a decision statement setting out the actions it proposes to take in response to the examiner’s report.
