Pirton’s Neighbourhood Plan


Pirton Neighbourhood Development Plan 2011-2031

The Neighbourhood Plan - Passed Through NHDC Cabinet 23rd March 2018

More Great News!  At the NHDC Cabinet Meeting, following some very complementary remarks about what good news it is, how much work had gone into it and the level of communication and consultation involved, the Cabinet voted unanimously for the Pirton Neighbourhood Development Plan to go to referendum in March.  

This is not just another step, because it is a massive one.  The Pirton Neighbourhood Plan now counts:

"9.4  As a consequence of receiving the examiner's report for the Pirton Neighbourhood Plan, the local planning authority must now have regard to the provisions of the neighbourhood plan as a material consideration in the determination of planning applications within Pirton parish."

With the Examiner's and councillors' comments and the vote, the PNP is confirmed as a high quality, comprehensive document based on proper, high quality consultation with the community and with NHDC, and a positive contribution to sustainable development in Pirton and the Parish.  

Next Step: Referendum
