Puddletown Neighbourhood Plan
Consultation on the Submitted Plan
As the local planning authority, the council is required to consult on the plan proposals before the examination takes place. The consultation process will run from Friday 26 June until Friday 7 August 2020. This is an opportunity for individuals and organisations to raise concerns they have about the plan with regard to the content and how it has been prepared. An independent examiner will be appointed and any concerns will be passed on to them for consideration as part of the examination process.
The Puddletown Area Neighbourhood Plan is available to read together with the supporting documents which are as follows:
Other supporting evidence can be viewed on the neighbourhood plan website.
In the time of COVID-19 hard copies of the Neighbourhood Plan will not be available to view at the Community library or the Dorset Council Office. The plan and the supporting documents can be viewed on the Puddletown Area Parish Website.
Interested parties have 6 weeks from Friday 26 June 2020 to Friday 7 August 2020 to make comments on the plan. The deadline for responding to the consultation is the end of Friday 7 August 2020. Representations should be made using the response form available via the links below.

If you have no alternative then response forms should be sent to:
Planning Policy Team, South Walks House, South Walks Road, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1UZ
A summary of the comments will be forwarded to the Parish Council and published on the website.
