Medbourne’s Neighbourhood Plan

Current Status

The Parish Council formally submitted the Medbourne Neighbourhood Plan to Harborough District Council on 8th December 2017.

Harborough District Council is holding a public consultation (Regulation 16) on the Plan, starting on Wednesday 7th February and closing on Thursday 22nd March 2018.

The Plan and associated documents are available below. Printed copies for reference are held locally at the Medbourne Village Shop and Post Office, the Sports Club and by the MNPAC Chair (Bernadette Lee 07703 513707) and Secretary (David Nance 07798 920049).

For further details and representation forms, please visit www.harborough.gov.uk/consultation. Representations should be submitted to Harborough District Council by 22nd March 2018.

What Next…

Following the Regulation 16 consultation, the Plan will be sent, with accompanying documents and all representations made during the publicity period, to an Independent Examiner who will review it and check that it meets the ‘Basic Conditions’. If the Plan successfully passes this stage, following any modifications, it will be put forward for referendum.

The referendum question will be a straight “yes” or “no” on the entire Plan, as set out by Neighbourhood Planning Regulations. People will not be able to vote for or against individual policies. If 50% or more of respondents vote for the Plan, it will be brought into force (‘Made’) and become part of District-wide planning policy. 

The Parish Council believes that our Neighbourhood Plan reflects the views and aspirations of the whole Medbourne community and hopes for a positive outcome from the referendum.
