Colston Bassett Neighbourhood Plan (Draft Version 8)

The Colston Bassett Neighbourhood Plan

Following widespread consultations with local businesses, landowners and other interested parties, and with particular regard to the feedback gathered during three public consultations with parishioners, the hard work of a large group of local volunteers has now been gathered together into Draft Version Eight of the Colston Bassett Neighbourhood Plan. Whilst minor changes (and grammatical corrections) may still be made, once the Draft Neighbourhood Plan is adopted by the Parish Council that pre-Submission version of your Neighbourhood Plan will be made available for wider consultation. The Parish Council will also publicise further opportunities to meet and discuss the content of the Draft Plan locally. Any correspondence regarding the Colston Bassett Neighbourhood Plan should be addressed to The Colston Bassett Parish Clerk and can be delivered or sent to 5 Church Gate, Colston Bassett, Nottingham, NG12 3FP or sent by email to

Once comments have been collated and any amendments taken on board the Draft Plan will also eventually become subject to comment (and potential change) as a result of the National Inspection process, but it will continue to reflect the clear local steer already reflected within your Plan, set within the wider context of National Planning Policies. Whilst the Draft Plan already reflects the clear majority direction of their feedback to date, parishioners will also get a further opportunity during the ongoing formal process to vote for or against adopting the (Final Version) Neighbourhood Plan in a Parish-wide referendum.

For your information the latest version of the Draft Neighbourhood Plan, Version Eight, is published below. Further revisions of the Neighbourhood Plan will be published as appropriate and parishioners kept informed of the ongoing process accordingly.
