Thirston Neighbourhood Plan

To seek approval to formally ‘make’ the Thirston Neighbourhood Plan. The Plan passed independent examination in June 2021. A local referendum will be held in the Parish of Thirston on 16 September 2021 and it is expected that there will be a majority vote in favour of using the Plan to make decisions on planning applications. The Council will then be obliged by statute to make the Neighbourhood Plan unless it considers that doing so would breach European Union obligations, and that action should be completed within 8 weeks of the date of the referendum.
