Tiptree Neighbourhood Plan

Tiptree Neighbourhood Plan


Regulation 16 Public Consultation

Following the Regulation 14 consultation earlier this year, the Tiptree Neighbourhood Plan (NP) has been adjusted and the final version has been submitted to Colchester Borough Council (CBC) for the Regulation 16 consultation.

The Regulation 16 consultation will run from Tuesday 30th August until 5pm on Wednesday 12th October 2022.

Following this consultation, the NP will undergo examination.  If it passes the examination it will be subject to a referendum and if a majority of local people are in favour, it will then be adopted as part of the Colchester Local Plan.  In this respect it will shape the development of Tiptree until 2033 and will protect Tiptree from speculative planning proposals and appeals.

We need your support.  Please comment at the CBC consultation portal or by email as indicated below and please do so even if you also commented at the last consultation.  The consultation portal allows you the option to comment at various points through the Plan but you do not need to comment unless you have something you wish to say.  However for those wishing to express their support for the plan we suggest you comment on each of the 16 policies selecting ‘support’ and adding the comment ‘I agree’.  If you want to make a general comment in support of the plan it is suggested you do that at the first section (Foreword).
