Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
1. That the making of the Bere Regis Neighbourhood Plan would not breach and is compatible with EU and human rights obligations.
2. That the Bere Regis Neighbourhood Plan as submitted to and approved by referendum be made under section 38A(4) of the 2004 Act.
3. That with the agreement of Bere Regis Parish Council the Bere Regis Neighbourhood Plan as made be modified by:
a. the replacement of the wording of Policy BR6 with that recommended by the examiner and approved by Purbeck District Council on 19 March 2019; and
b. the deletion of the proposed SANG from Map 5, as recommended by the examiner and approved by Purbeck District Council on 19 March 2019 (the extent of the SANG is shown elsewhere in the plan);
on the basis that such modifications do not materially affect the policies in the plan or are correcting errors of a type contemplated by section 61M(4) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
Reason for Decisions
National Planning Practice Guidance, Paragraph 641, states ‘if the majority of those who vote in a referendum are in favour of the draft neighbourhood plan or Order (or, where there is also a business referendum, a majority vote in favour of both referendums), then the neighbourhood plan or Order must be made by the local planning authority within 8 weeks of the referendum’.
