SUMMARY OF THE NORTH MARTSON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

The Chair of the NMNP Steering Group, Michael Lane, has very kindly produced, on behalf of the Parish Council, a summary of the important parts of the Plan with explanatory notes. This is very much shorter than the full Plan and has been produced to try and ensure that as many people as possible are aware of the future that the Plan is laying out for North Marston.  If you have not yet read the Plan please do read this summary, and, if you know someone who is not able to access it online or on Facebook, please make them, and others aware that this summary has been produced.    It can also be downloaded from this link:

NORTH MARSTON NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN UPDATE

from Michael Lane, Chair of the NMNP Steering Group:

The long Neighbourhood Plan process is at last nearing its end. Buckinghamshire Council have assessed the independent examiner’s final report on the North Marston Neighbourhood Plan (NMNP) and have accepted his recommendation that the Plan should go forward to a local referendum.

This local parish referendum is currently scheduled to take place on
Thursday February 9 2023 in the Schorne Room at the Memorial Hall.
North Marston residents on the electoral roll are entitled to vote.

In preparation for the referendum, the final Referendum Version of NMNP containing technical modifications required by the examiner has been produced by the Steering Group. 

In all important respects, this final version of the Plan is unchanged from the previous version, but it does contain a few textual changes and number of technical modifications to the wording of some policies to ensure complete compatibility with legal requirements and the national and local
conditions for neighbourhood plans.

The examiner has made no material alterations to the impact or nature of the policies and contents in NMNP, and he has endorsed the Plan’s approaches to small-scale development in the parish, and the protection of the countryside, heritage, and community facilities. At his instruction, the North Marston Design Code will also be integrated more closely with NMNP and become an Annex to the NMNP itself giving it more legal force.

All residents are encouraged to read the North Marston Referendum Neighbourhood Plan if at all possible. If the NMNP passes the referendum, then the protections, policies, and contents of both the Neighbourhood Plan and the Design Code will be used by Buckinghamshire Council to help decide
all planning applications relevant to North Marston parish from Friday 10 February 2023, giving the wishes of the parish a central voice in those decisions. A simple majority of those voting is required for the Plan to come into force.
