Neighbourhood Planning

Making a Neighbourhood Plan
To make a Neighbourhood Plan, communities need to come together to create a forum which has to be consulted on and formally designated by the council.

The forum also has to identify the area which the plan will cover. This area has to be consulted on and designated by the council.

Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Area

The Hackbridge and Bedddington Corner Neighbourhood Development Group submitted a draft Neighbourhood Plan for their area. The council, with the agreement of the Neighbourhood Development Group, has appointed Mr David Hogger BA MSc MRTPI MCIHT as independent examiner for the Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Plan. The examiner will consider the representations submitted to the council and whether the plan meets the ‘Basic Conditions’.

The Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Plan includes policies on a range of matters including housing, the built environment, local economy, environment, energy, waste, water, movement and community infrastructure. If adopted, the plan will become part of Sutton’s statutory development plan and will be used alongside the council’s own planning documents and the Mayor’s London Plan in determining applications in the Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Area.

Having completed an initial review of the draft Neighbourhood Plan, Mr Hogger contacted the council and the Hackbridge and Beddington Corner Neighbourhood Development Group on 18 June 2018 with a number of questions regarding the Plan. This correspondence can be downloaded and viewed in the link below.

Documents relating to the examination are available at the link below.
