Community Led Planning & Neighbourhood Plans

Burnham-on-Crouch Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

This consultation is now closed

Neighbourhood Planning was introduced through the Localism Act 2011, and enables local communities to shape development and growth in their area through the production of a Neighbourhood Plan.  A Neighbourhood Plan covers a geographic area and can be taken forward by Town and Parish Councils or 'neighbourhood forums'.  A Neighbourhood Plan, if approved, becomes part of the statutory development plan for that area and will be used in determining planning applications.

The Burnham-on-Crouch Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for the Town Council area and establishes the type of development needed to help sustain the community.  Maldon District Council has received the Burnham-on-Crouch Neighbourhood Plan Submission documents for publication in accordance with Part 5 Regulation 16 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.  This triggers a six week formal consultation period prior to the plan being examined by an independent examiner.

The consultation period commenced on 3 November and closed at 5pm on 15 December 2016

  1. Burnham-on-Crouch Neighbourhood Plan (NP) draft for regulation 16 consultation, including a map which identifies the Neighbourhood Plan area
