Local residents have one last chance to have their say on the Part 2 Local Plan for Corby following the approval of the final publication draft for six weeks public consultation to take place between Monday 5th August and Monday 16th September 2019.
The Part 2 Local Plan is a very important document, as it sets out detailed policies and non-strategic development allocations to support the adopted Joint Core Strategy, which is the strategic Part 1 Local Plan for North Northamptonshire, providing the big picture for development up until 2031.
Residents views from two recent consultations in 2016 and 2018 have helped shape the final proposals. The Council is stressing that this final consultation is different.
The results of the consultation will be submitted directly to the government ahead of an Examination by a planning inspector. The Inspector is required to consider whether the plan has been prepared in accordance with the relevant Regulations and is ‘sound’.
All consultation documents and the evidence for the Part 2 Local Plan are available to view on the planning policy pages of the Council’s website at www.corby.gov.uk or alternatively on our consultation portal at https://consult.corby.gov.uk. Hard copies of the Part 2 Local Plan and accompanying environmental assessments can be found in the Corby Cube and local libraries during the consultation period.
The Council will be holding drop-in events during the consultation period with planning officers on hand to discuss the consultation documents and provide advice on how to reply to the consultation. These will be held on:
- Saturday 10 August at Corby Cube Reception Area, from 11am to 3pm
- Wednesday 14 August at Oakley Vale Community Centre, from 1pm to 5pm
- Friday 16 August at Gretton Village Hall, from 3pm to 8pm
