Have your Say! East Northamptonshire Council’s consultation on development plan for Oundle now open

Have your Say! East Northamptonshire Council’s consultation on development plan for Oundle now open

East Northamptonshire Council's (ENC) development plan for Oundle - Is this what Oundle needs? Consultation now open online - Ends 4:30pm 19th March 2021

Our town's future is laid out in the East Northamptonshire Local Plan 2. The Oundle content of this plan is very different to what the town asked for in the various representations over the past 3 years.

READ the Development Plan consultation

There is a huge amount to read.

Although the process says that the plan is out for consultation, there is only a very limited remit of what can be raised in this consultation. It is only possible to comment on whether ENC's Plan is –

- Positively prepared

- Justified

- Effective

- Consistent with national policy

Effectively you are being asked if you believe that the viable alternatives have been considered fairly. OTC do not believe that they have and will be preparing an evidence-based document to submit on the town's behalf before March (which we will publish on our site/social media feeds on March 17th).

If in the meantime, if you want to have your say, then please do have a look at the whole plan on the ENC site or contact your ENC Councillor who are all on Oundle's side. AND VERY IMPORTANTLY "...unredacted copies of all representations will also be submitted to the Secretary of State with this Plan."
