On behalf of Calverton Parish Council, Gedling Borough Council held a consultation on the Submission version of the Calverton Neighbourhood Plan between Friday 20 January 2017 and Friday 3 March 2017.

The representations received during this consultation period are now available to view by clicking the link below:

Consultation responses

The comments received through the consultation along with the Submission Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents have been passed to an independent Examiner, Robert Yuille. The Examiner will consider the representations, whether the plan meets the basic conditions and other relevant legal requirements, and will determine if the plan should be put to a community referendum. The Examiner may request further information to help in his consideration and may conduct the examination through written representations only, or he may call a public hearing to examine a particular issue in more depth.

The Examiner has to decide whether or not the plan meets the "basic conditions" and make a report that either:

  • the plan is submitted to referendum,
  • modifications specified in the report are made and the plan as modified is submitted to referendum, or
  • the plan is rejected.

The plan reflects the community's vision for the future of the parish; where investment should go for the future of the parish; and provides village residents with a voice in the planning process. The Submission Neighbourhood Plan has had regard to comments received during the previous round of consultation undertaken by the Parish Council between 18 July 2016 until Sunday 18 September 2016.

The plan and accompanying information that are available for inspection are:

Hard copies of the documents can be viewed at:
