Scothern Neighbourhood Plan MADE

Scothern Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by West Lindsey District Council at a Full Council Committee meeting on the 23 January 2017.

The Scothern Neighbourhood Plan now 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.

A review of the Scothern Neighbourhood Plan is in progress.

Scothern Parish Council has submitted its Neighbourhood Plan Review and supporting documents for consideration under Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 16. We will now consult with the public and consultation bodies. All the documents are listed at the bottom of this page and can be viewed by clicking on the document links. If you require additional assistance in accessing the documents please call our customer services on (01427) 676676.

The consultation period is until 14 July 2023.
