On 29 May 2014 the council approved the designation of the West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Forum and West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Area following a six week consultation period in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.
At Full Council on 29 May 2014, the Council agreed to:
- Designate the area shown on appended Figure 1 as the West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Area for the purposes of producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan or Neighbourhood Development Order; and
- Designate the West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Forum as the ‘relevant body’ under 61G (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) as represented by the West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Area
All of the information relating to the designation of the Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum can be found below.
Letter confirming designation of the West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Area from the council
A covering letter and the information for the respective applications includes the following:
- A statement from the working group explaining why they are an appropriate body to produce the neighbourhood plan
- A copy of the written constitution
- Confirmation that the proposed West Clarendon Hinckley Neighbourhood Forum has at least 21 individual members
- A map which identifies the area
- A statement which explains why the area is appropriate to be designated as a neighbourhood area
Progress on West Clarendon Neighbourhood Plan
The Town and Country Planning Act 1990, section 61F (8) states:
(8) A designation:
- Ceases to have effect at the end of the period of five years beginning with the day on which it is made but without affecting the validity of any proposal for a neighbourhood development order made before the end of that period, and
- In the case of the designation of an unincorporated association, is not to be affected merely because of a change in the membership of the association.
There has been limited progress on the Neighbourhood Plan for the designated area, and five years have passed since the original designation at Full Council, as outlined above.
As five years have passed since Full Council on 29 May 2014, in accordance with the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the Local Planning Authority confirms that the body’s designation as a neighbourhood forum and the designation of the neighbourhood area have expired, as at 29 May 2019.
However, if the forum would like to reconstitute at any time, they can apply to the Local Planning Authority to have the forum area re-designated for another five year period.
