Chalfont St Giles
Chalfont St Giles Parish Council has produced a Draft Neighbourhood Plan covering the entire parish area.
The Neighbourhood Plan was publicised in advance of the examination. The Consultation Period ran between 26th February 2018 and 9th April 2018.
Chiltern District Council, with agreement from Chalfont St Giles Parish Council, appointed Janet Cheesley to act as the examiner for the Chalfont St Giles Neighbourhood Plan. She will examine the Neighbourhood Plan in accordance with the regulations and produce an examination report in due course.
Following the Examiner's initial review of the Neighbourhood Plan documents submitted for examination, she raised concerns regarding the environmental assessment of the neighbourhood plan and the level of detail in the original Habitats Regulations determination by Chiltern District Council. This in particular related to a recent non-related legal case where it was held that an initial screening assessment should not include any effects of mitigation. As such the Examiner considered it would be prudent to undertake a fresh screening assessment before the plan was formally examined. The Parish Council as the Neighbourhood Plan Group decided to suspend the neighbourhood plan examination and requested Chiltern District Council to undertake the necessary steps to re-assess the environmental aspects of the Neighbourhood Plan.
Re-consultation on the Chalfont St Giles Neighbourhood Plan
Following completion of the environmental assessment of the Neighbourhood Plan, the Council re-consulted on the Neighbourhood Plan alongside the new environmental documents. The 2nd public consultation period ran from 21st December 2018 until 8th February 2019. The examiner will consider all representations made either in the first consultation period or the second consultation period.
The Examiner, Janet Cheesley, has now commenced the examination of the Chalfont St Giles Neighbourhood Plan. Any correspondence during the examination will be published on this webpage.
