Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee (Virtual) Meeting Minutes:

12 August  2020



Present: Tim Sheppard, Chair (TS), Jennie Jordan (JJ), Barbara Campbell (BC), Ian Poole (IP).

Apologies: Chris White (CW).


IP advised that there were no major issues arising from the consultation responses, albeit amendments to the draft Neighbourhood Plan will be made in light of some of the comments received.


Clarification of certain specific points was sought by IP from the other Steering Committee members present who live in the Village.


IP will prepare a Schedule of Proposed Changes. TS will circulate this in advance of the next Parish Council meeting on 10 September 2020.


IP will also complete the formal Consultation Statement and the Basic Conditions Statement.


It is hoped that the 6-week consultation process to be undertaken by Babergh DC, will commence towards the end of September 2020. A further meeting of the NP Committee may take place once the consultation responses have been received.


In terms of finances, there appear to be enough funds to cover the expenditure required to complete the NP process. JJ is to undertake a review, in liaison with IP, in order to the confirm the exact position.


It is anticipated that the next (and possibly last) meeting of the NP Steering Committee will take place towards the end of October 2020.


5pm – 6.15pm.
