Birchington Neighbourhood Plan - Regulation 16 Consultation on the Basic Conditions Statement

Regulation 16 Consultation on the Basic Conditions Statement

During his Examination of the Birchington Neighbourhood Plan, the Examiner (Mr Jeremy Edge) found the Basic Conditions Statement, as submitted by Birchington Parish Council, to be incomplete.

The Parish Council revised their Basic Conditions Statement and resubmitted it to the Council.

The Council is now carrying out a 6 week consultation seeking comments on the revised Basic Conditions Statement. Please add your comments here. Any comments received will be passed to the Examiner, and the Examination process will then resume.

None of the other documents previously submitted have been changed, however they are available below by way of context.

A letter from the Examiner outlining his concerns with the Basic Conditions Statement and a Summary of Legal Advice provided to Thanet District Council are available to view.

Paper copies of the revised Basic Conditions Statement are available for inspection at Birchington Library, 17 Alpha Road, Birchington, CT7 9EG during normal opening hours, and at Birchington Parish Council, 2 Albion Road, Birchington, CT7 9DN 9am - 5pm Mon-Fri by appointment only. To arrange an appointment, please call 01843 846666 or email
