Examiner's Public Hearing

The Regulation 14 Beech Neighbourhood Plan Consultation took Place between Tuesday 5th February 2019 and Tuesday the 2nd April 2019.

The Regulation 16 Beech Neighbourhood Development Plan Consultation took place between Monday 22 July and Monday 2 September 2019.

The examiner is considering the Neighbourhood Plan in the context of representations to the Regulation 16 Consultation and has decided to hold a public hearing, to give Gladman Developments Ltd a fair chance to put forward their case.

This is because Gladman Developments Ltd representation at pre-submission (Regulation 14) stage of the Neighbourhood Planning process was not considered by Beech Parish Council.

The public hearing will be held at 2 pm on Wednesday 12 February 2020 at Beech Village Hall.

Members of the public are invited to attend, but only those invited to participate (as listed in the formal notice of the hearing) will be able to take part in the discussion.

An agenda has been prepared by the examiner along with a set of guidance notes, which will be of interest to attendees.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING UNDER PARAGRAPH 9(2) OF SCHEDULE 4B

 

EAST HAMPSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL – EXAMINATION OF THE BEECH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT 1990 (“The 1990 Act”) SECTION 61E & SCHEDULE 4B: PROCESS FOR MAKING OF NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT ORDERS (“SCHEDULE 4B”) NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING UNDER PARAGRAPH 9(2) OF SCHEDULE 4B

 

Notice is given that the appointed Independent Examiner, Ann Skippers BSc (Hons), MRTPI, FRSA, AoU, into the abovementioned draft neighbourhood plan has decided to hold a Public Hearing as part of the examination.

 

The purpose of the Public Hearing is to give Gladman Developments Ltd a fair chance to put their case. This is because their representation at pre-submission stage (Regulation 14 of The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) was not considered by Beech Parish Council, in its role as qualifying body for preparing the Beech Neighbourhood Plan.

Venue: Beech Village Hall, 1 Wellhouse Road, Beech, Hampshire, GU34 4AQ

Date: Wednesday 12 February 2020 Start Time: 2pm

 

After the Independent Examiner has introduced the Public Hearing and its purpose, the Independent Examiner will invite Gladman Developments Ltd to put forward their case on the draft Policies or other aspects of the draft neighbourhood plan in relation to compliance with the basic conditions and other matters the Independent Examiner must consider.

The Public Hearing will take the form of a roundtable discussion. The Independent Examiner will invite the participants to give their respective comments and may ask questions or raise points of each participant.

Members of the general public are warmly invited to attend, but only those invited to participate in advance (and listed on this notice) will be able to speak and take part in the discussion.

It is important to note that not everyone who has made representations will be invited to participate in the Public Hearing. The Public Hearing will not consider every matter raised in representations. This is because the Independent Examiner considers that these other matters can be adequately dealt with by way of written representations.

After the Public Hearing the Independent Examiner is expected to complete and submit the examination report by the end of March 2020.

The examination report will set out whether or not the neighbourhood plan should proceed to the next step of a referendum; and if so whether any modifications should be made to it before it is subject to a referendum, in accordance with Schedule 4B of the 1990 Act.
