Scothern Neighbourhood Plan

Scothern Neighbourhood Plan – Adopted (Made)

Scothern Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by West Lindsey District Council at a Full Council Committee meeting on the 23 January 2017. It forms part of the development plan for its area. Under planning law, planning application decisions should be made in accordance with the development plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise. The development plan should be given full weight and be the first point of reference/guidance for anyone making a determination on a planning application.

Scothern Neighbourhood Plan – Review

The Scothern Neighbourhood Plan Review is currently at examination stage which is being undertaken by an independent examiner. The examiner will consider all representations received from consultation on the final plan submitted and they will scrutinise the plan against relevant legislation. When completed, the examiner will produce an examination report that may propose modifications to the Plan. The examiner will also recommend whether they feel the Plan should proceed to a public referendum.  For more details see the documents in the documents section.
