Reason for Decision
To progress the Bridport Neighbourhood Plan to referendum so that pending a favourable vote, the plan can be 'made'
Alternative Options considered and rejected
The Council can decide not to follow the recommendations of the Examiner, but it must set out its reasons for doing so.
The Council has agreed to accept all of the Examiner’s recommendations made within her report but with the exception of two modifications to Policy H3. These modifications are with the agreement of the Joint Councils Committee (JCC).
Policy H3 has been re-titled ‘Affordable Housing Exceptions Sites’ rather than ‘Rural Exceptions Sites and Entry Level Exception sites’.
a) The Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan 2020 - 2036 as modified can proceed to referendum
b) A recommendation to 'make' the Bridport Area Neighbourhood Plan 2020 - 2036 be made to a Cabinet meeting after the referendum if the result of the referendum is in support of making the plan and there are no other issues identified that would go against such a decision.
