Consultation on the Submission draft of the Dalston Parish Neighbourhood Plan closed on 17:00 on Tuesday 29 August 2017. The Independent Examiner, Chris Collison, has considered the responses received and has officially reached a decision on whether or not the Plan has met the basic conditions and is legally compliant, as outlined in the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations (2012).
The Council has now received the Examiner's Report, which is available to download below. The Examiner has recommended that the Dalston Parish Neighbourhood Plan, subject to a number of modifications also detailed in the report, proceed to public referendum.
Carlisle City Council will now consider the recommended modifications formally at the next Executive meeting on 23 October. The Council will also seek to establish a date for referendum at this meeting. Further information regarding the referendum will be published on this page once it is available.
