Dear Villagers,

You did it!  What an amazing response from the village – across the summer, when we are all fed up with neighbourhood planning and don’t want to upset our friends and neighbours –150+ of you stood up and were counted.  The response is a boost for this team!

Now, with guidance from SDOC and our advisors, we have very robust processes to catalogue, log and track all the comments, so we have [a lot of] work to do.

A few asked for acknowledgement of receipt.  In line with SODC planning policy, we will not be acknowledging individual submissions but ask that you check the ‘Consultation Statement’, out in the next round of statutory consultation.  There we’ll have all of the feedback listed, along with our responses.  You can comment again at that time.

We welcome all feedback.  We will carefully consider all submissions to shape the plan going forward, to build our defences against inappropriate development.  Despite the considerable effort, the team remain absolutely convinced that, having considered all options, progressing the NP is the best possible way forward and we appreciate your support!
