St Neots Neighbourhood Plan reaches halfway point in district wide consultation.Local support and feedback requested by Tuesday 9th September at 5pm.The St Neots Neighbourhood Plan has reached the halfway point in a district wide consultation today (Tuesday 19th August) and residents of St Neots are encouraged to show their support for the proposals during this consultation stage.Over the last three weeks, Huntingdonshire District Council has opened up the St Neots Neighbourhood Plan to the whole district; enabling individuals, community groups and businesses to view the published plan online, show their support to the proposals and offer any further feedback before the Plan is submitted for independent examination later this year.The St Neots Neighbourhood Plan has helped the town to have a unique say in the development of the community for the first time. Objectives and policies focus on how to protect existing facilities and assets, improve local infrastructure and create new employment opportunities and community activities in the heart of St Neots.A number of supportive comments, observations and proposed changes for the plan have been submitted by local residents in the last three weeks and it is hoped that the St Neots community will continue to share their views before the consultation closes on Tuesday 9th September at 5pm.The plan has also drawn interest and positive contributions from national organisations such as Natural England, English Heritage and the Marine Management Organisation.The Huntingdonshire District Council consultation page can be accessed directly from the St Neots Town Council website at www.stneots-tc.gov.uk/stneotsplan.The Neighbourhood Plan was compiled by the St Neots Town Council’s Development and Growth committee in spring 2014 and presented to Huntingdon District Council in April 2014 by St Neots Councillors Louie Ruck and David Harty; alongside local MP Jonathan Djanogly.Following the district wide consultation process, the St Neots Neighbourhood Plan will be submitted for independent examination. If approved, the plan will be subject to a referendum in the area it affects. If accepted, the plan will then form part of the local planning policy for St Neots.
