2nd Consultation

The Revised (2nd) Pre-Submission Consultation copy of the Drayton Neighbourhood Plan was open for its 6 week public consultation from 16th June 2014 until 1st August 2014. Comments received from Statutory Consultees, other organisations and individual members of the public are given below. Feedback from Drayton 2020 on these comments is also given below.

A second consultation was required because the VWHDC revised its DRAFT Local Plan and published its Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) with a large increase in the housing requirement in the VWHDC, including an allocated strategic site for up to 200 houses in Drayton.

The Revised Drayton Consultation copy has been restructured to –

a) Separate Planning from Community Policies;

b) Allocate Housing Sites in Drayton;

c) To take into account feedback from the first consultation from Drayton residents and statutory bodies (see the 1st Consultation).


The following documents comprise the 2nd DRAFT Plan :
