Content

This is a debugging block

Proposed Submission Local Plan (Regulation 19 Consultation)

Between the 12th April and 26th May 2017 the Council is undertaking statutory consultation on the Proposed Submission Local Plan 2012-2032. The consultation runs until midnight (24:00) on Friday 26th May 2017. A leaflet giving information about the consultation is available as a download on the right and by clicking here.

The Proposed Submission Local Plan is that which the Council proposes to submit to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for Independent Examination. The Local Plan relates to the whole borough and will provide the statutory planning framework for Burnley up to 2032. When adopted, it will replace the current saved Local Plan of 2006.

Representations on the Plan, Policies Map, supporting studies and Evidence Base are invited. 

The Proposed Submission Local Plan and Policies Maps can be downloaded from the Downloads section on the right hand side of this page or using the links below. The material is also available for inspection at Contact Burnley, Burnley Central Library and Padiham Library during normal opening hours.

 
How to make representations
 
For representations to be accepted ('duly made') they must:
 
  • Be received by the deadline specified: Late representations will not be accepted and will not be sent to the Inspector;
  • Relate to the Proposed Submission Local Plan, its content, its evidence base, or its preparation;
  • Not be anonymous (you must give your name and postal address); and
  • Not be offensive, libellous, racist or otherwise breach the law (i.e. inadmissible)
You may find it easiest to comment online using the Council's Online Consultation Form. Please click on the following link to access this Form.
 
If you do not wish to use the Online Consultation Form you can also provide comments using the specially designed comments form below. These should be completed and returned to the Council by post or email. Details are included on the forms.  Both these methods will ensure that your comments are set out in the best way to be considered by the Inspector at the Examination. We would advise you to read the information and guidance notes below before completing the form.
 
 
You can also submit comments by email to:localplan@burnley.gov.uk or in writing to: Burnley Borough Council, Regeneration and Planning Policy, 19 Parker Lane, Burnley BB11 2BY. Again we would advise you to read the information and guidance notes above before emailing or writing to us.
 
If you are commenting via petition, please note only those giving names, addresses and signatures, where appropriate, will be "counted"
 
The Council will acknowledge receipt of representations received as follows:
 
  • a short acknowledgement letter/email in response to individual respondents; or
  • a short acknowledgement letter/email in response to petitions - via the lead or first name only
NB Only representations made at this proposed submission stage will be sent to the Inspector to be considered at the Examination and only those making representations can take part in the Examination in writing or in person at the Hearings, or both. If you object to or support the Plan, please do not rely on any earlier comments made.
 
Other Supporting Documents
 
The Proposed Submission Local Plan consultation is supported by a range of other documents, including a Sustainability Appraisal Report, Habitats Regulations Assessment and a Consultation Statement.
 
The Local Plan has also been informed by a wide range of evidence base studies. These can be viewed in the Evidence Base section of the Council's website.
 
Planning Consultation Events
 
Two drop-in sessions will be held during the consultation period to allow people to come and look at the proposals and speak to council officers about how to comment and about the forthcoming examination. These will both be held at Burnley Town Hall, between 2pm and 9pm, on 18th April and 11th May. 
 
What happens next?
 
Looking ahead, the intention is to submit the document for Examination by the independent Inspector in July 2017. The Examination begins immediately the plan is submitted. All duly made representations received at the Proposed Submission stage will be submitted to the Secretary of State and considered as part of the Examination.
 
As part of the Examination process there will be public Hearing sessions with the Inspector and these are likely to take place in the autumn.
