Submission Draft Plan – Council Consultation

    Submission Draft consultation underway! You should have received the “Have Your Say” leaflet which the council produced, our own leaflet will be delivered to all properties within the forum boundary during April 2021.

    In accordance with the relevant legislation the next stage of the process to deliver a Neighbourhood Plan requires South Tyneside Council to consult on what is called the Submission Draft Plan. The consultation runs from 15 March 2021 to 23 April 2021, details are available on the Council’s website.

    The Submission Draft Plan is based on the Draft Plan which we consulted on between October and December 2020 although the plan has been strengthened following comments which were received during our consultation.

    You can see the comments we received in the Consultation Statement which is available as part of the current consultation. This document includes comments from land owners and potential developers as well as those of local residents and other interested parties, including statutory bodies.

    All comments on the plan should be made directly to the council by emailing or writing to them. The email address to use is:

    Please remember to include your name and address!

    Your comments are very important as this is a community driven plan which needs to be supported by those who live and work in the forum area.

    The council will then provide an independent examiner with all of the responses received and the examiner will then determine the next steps.

    The Submission Draft comprises of a number of documents:
