Medbourne Parish Council

Neighbourhood Plan

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

Harborough District Council then carried out a Public Consultation (Regulation 16) on the Plan, which ran for six weeks from 7th February to 22nd March 2018.

The Plan has now passed examination by an Independent Examiner who has reviewed it and checked that it meets the ‘Basic Conditions’.  Following modifications recommended by the Examiner, Harborough District Council Executive has approved the plan so that it can now proceed to 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.  

For further information and to access the submission documents visit the Neighbourhood Plan pages.
