Leckhampton with Warden Hill Neighbourhood Plan

Closes 12 Mar 2024

Opened 29 Jan 2024

Overview

Thank you for your interest in the future of Leckhampton and Warden Hill area.

The Leckhampton with Warden Hill Parish Council has drafted a Neighbourhood Plan following feedback from earlier consultation and consideration. This was consulted on last year and has been submitted with accompanying documents to Cheltenham Borough Council under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The draft Neighbourhood Plan must now be publicised by Cheltenham Borough Council as the Local Planning Authority for a minimum 6 week period (Regulation 16).

This Neighbourhood Plan contains planning policies and proposals for improving the area. It will deal with a wide range of social, economic and environmental issues from local commercial and community facilities, from the transport links, cycle lanes and walking routes, to local heritage, improvements to local flood risk and the protection of open space, including designated local green space on the Leckhampton Fields.

Evidence and further documentation have been added as appendices and annexes, like social and demographic profile of the area, lists of heritage buildings and green spaces. A travel and transport plan and statements including important background information on the areas valued landscape can also be viewed. All the documents can be downloaded below.

If agreed, the Neighbourhood Plan will be an important influence on guiding future development in Leckhampton and Warden Hill. It sets out the Parish Council’s vision for the area and the policies they would like to see followed by decision-makers, especially when it comes to planning applications.

At the end of the consultation, the Neighbourhood Plan will be submitted to an Independent Examiner for consideration and you’ll be able to vote on the plan in due course.

Thank you for taking part in this important consultation.

Why your views matter

Publicity under Regulation 16 is different to the earlier pre-submission consultation (Regulation 14).

The Regulation 14 consultation carried out by the neighbourhood planning body would have allowed anyone to comment on any aspect of the plan and for modifications to be made, if necessary. Following the Regulation 16 publicity period, any representations made will be passed to the independent examiner. This means that they will only be considered within the remit of the Independent Examination, which is to decide whether the Neighbourhood Plan proposal meets the set of conditions as set out by law.

The current consultation will run for just over 6 weeks from 29 January 2024 until 11:59pm on 12 March 2024. Comments received will be collated and sent to the independent examiner.
