Reasons for Decision
The examiner’s recommendations will ensure the Mayfair Neighbourhood Plan is clear and effective as a framework for making decisions on planning applications in the Mayfair Neighbourhood Area. They address the concerns raised by the council and other stakeholders, and ensure the plan meets the basic conditions prescribed by legislation.
Before a neighbourhood plan can be made, it is a statutory requirement that it is first subject to local referendum. As Mayfair Neighbourhood Area is also designated as a business area, two referendums are required – one for residents, and one for businesses. In advance of the referendums, the council must publish a Decision Statement setting out the actions it proposes to take in response to the examiner’s report
