People who live and work in Ashby de la Zouch are invited to give their views on the Pre Submission Ashby de la Zouch Neighbourhood Plan and on the Strategic Environmental Assessment.  Thank you to the many residents and businesses who have responsed to our previous consultation on the Draft Neighbourhood Plan, your comments were analysed and substantial changes were made to the draft Plan to produce the new Pre Submission Neighbourhood Plan.

The Strategic Environmental Assessment can be downloaded by following this link.

Hard copies are also available at Ashby de la Zouch Town Council offices, Legion House, South Street, Ashby de la Zouch.

Comments can be submitted to Ashby De La Zouch on this response form until 13th March 2017.

Any comments will be reviewed and the Examination Version of the Ashby de la Zouch Neighbourhood Plan will be prepared ready for submission to North West Leicestershire District Council.

As part of the process of preparing the Neighbourhood Plan representations have been received from North West Leicestershire District Council and others that owing to the volume of housing required, a detailed examination of the potential environmental effects of the Neighbourhood Plan, including the impact on the River Mease was required.  This has resulted in a Strategic Environmental Assessment and a Habitats Regulation Assessment being completed.  This means further pre-submission Regulation 14 consultation is required.  This requirement meant the opportunity was also taken to amend the Neighbourhood Plan in response to comments received in the Phase 1 consultation and to ensure conformity with the Examination Local Plan for North West Leicestershire.

The Habitats Regulation Assessment can be downloaded by following this link
