An Independent Examiner has been appointed to review the Lydney NDP.

‘Lydney Neighbourhood Development Plan – Examiners Version 2’ was submitted to the District Council on May the 29th 2015 and Forest of Dean District Council conducted their own consultation on the revised Plan and invite people to make comments.

Following this they have appointed an independent assessor, Andrew Ashcroft, to examine the plan and make sure the Plan meets the criteria set down in Schedule 4B of The Town and Country  Planning Act 1990 as amended by The Localism Act 2011

The Independent assessor will either:

  1. Pass the Plan
  2. Pass the Plan with modifications
  3. Refuse the Plan

At this stage the Lydney NDP will go to a Public Vote in Lydney.JJ_AA
