Rushden Neighbourhood Plan
Our Neighbourhood Plan has now undergone public consultation with East Northamptonshire Council (our Local Planning Authority). East Northamptonshire Council have now considered all the representations received during the public consultation studied the plan for it's soundness. East Northamptonshire Council are happy with content of our Neighbourhood Plan and have now submitted it for inspection.
An independent Planning Inspector has been appointed by East Northants Council and they will carry out an inspection to determine the viability and soundness of the proposed plan and that it meets statutory legal requirements. Once the inspection been undertaken the plan will be considered for the following options:-
