Barrowden and Wakerley Joint Neighbourhood Plan

Two local communities have joined together to draw up a joint neighbourhood plan to help shape development across their parishes.

The proposal is for a plan to cover the parish of Barrowden in Rutland and the parish of Wakerley which is in East Northamptonshire Council’s administrative area.

Current stage in process: Regulation 14 consultation

On 14 April 2018, Barrowden Parish Council published the “Regulation 14” (1st draft) version Neighbourhood Plan for consultation.

Representations in response to the Regulation 14 consultation need to be received by Barrowden Parish Council ( by 26 May 2018.  Full details are available through the Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan web page.

Previous Stage - Designation of Neighbourhood Area

The Neighbourhood Area application was submitted to each of the two local planning authorities (Rutland County Council and East Northamptonshire) to identify the area to be covered by the plan.

A map showing the proposed area to be covered by the plan together with a copy of the application that has been submitted to the two local planning authorities may be viewed below.

Statutory consultation for the Barrowden and Wakerley Neighbourhood Area took place over six weeks, between Friday 13 February 2015 and Friday 27 March 2015.

Following the statutory consultation under Regulation 6 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, the Barrowden and Wakerley Neighbourhood Area was confirmed by Rutland County Council and East Northamptonshire Council under delegated powers, with effect from Monday, 27 April 2015.

From hereon, Barrowden Parish Council, supported by Wakerley Parish Meeting, will commence the formal preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan covering these two Parishes.  Further details are also available through Rutland County Council’s Neighbourhood Planning web page.
