Broughton in Amounderness Parish Neighbourhood Area was designated as a Neighbourhood Area by the City Council on 17 March 2016.
The March 2017 Draft of the Broughton Neighbourhood Plan was received by Preston City Council (by the Qualifying Body, Broughton Parish Council) on 14 March 2017. Preston City Council consulted on the application for 6 weeks, as required under Regulation 16 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) and this consultation period closed in June 2017.
The City Council submitted the March 2017 draft plan and all associated documents (including all consultation responses received) for independent examination.
In September 2017 the Examiner submitted a report to the City Council, concluding that the plan could not proceed to referendum without amendment, as it failed to meet the basic conditions that are required to be met in order to proceed to referendum.
The City Council subsequently refused the March 2017 Draft Neighbourhood Plan, in accordance with the independent examiner’s recommendations.
Further information and background documents may be found on the Broughton Parish Council website.
