West Lindsey District Council (WLDC) has received from Owmby by Spital Parish Council, under Regulation 5 of the above Regulations, an area designation application for the purposes of producing its own neighbourhood plan for the Parish of Owmby by Spital only.
This application, if approved, will involve changes to current neighbourhood planning arrangements in place for the local area as Owmby by Spital Parish Council was previously preparing a joint neighbourhood plan with Normanby by Spital Parish Council, covering both parish areas. However on 28th May 2020 Normanby Parish Council notified WLDC of its decision to withdraw from the joint plan, and prepare its own neighbourhood plan for its parish area only.
On 5 July 2020 Owmby by Spital Parish Council notified WLDC that it also wished to prepare its own neighbourhood plan for its parish area only. As a result of the notifications, WLDC will withdraw the neighbourhood area for Normanby by Spital and Owmby by Spital which was previously designated on 9 June 2017.
The publication/consultation period for the Owmby by Spital application is until 5 October 2020. During this consultation period, the area designation application and proposed neighbourhood area can be viewed:
