Ingatestone and Fryerning Neighbourhood Plan

Ingatestone & Fryerning Parish Council have prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies that will be used to determine planning applications locally. The neighbourhood plan was formally submitted to Brentwood Borough Council under Regulation 15 in November 2021 and formally accepted by the Policy, Resources, and Economic Development (PRED) committee (PDF).

We have become the responsible authority for taking the neighbourhood plan through the remainder of the plan-making process.

We ran the Regulation 16 consultation for the neighbourhood plan between 16 December 2021 and 17 March 2022. The plan has been through the examination process (see Previous Stages below).

As outlined in the Notice of Compliance (PDF), Brentwood Borough Council considers that:

  1. The Qualified Body is authorized to act for the purposes of a Neighbourhood Plan and in relation to the Neighbourhood area concerned.
  2. The proposal complies with section 61F of the Localism Act 2011.
  3. The proposal has been made to the Local Planning Authority and the Local Planning Authority has not exercised its right to decline the proposals.
  4. The qualifying body has complied with requirements set out at paragraph 4 of schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, and the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012. 

The results of the Referendum were 86% in favour for the plan to be 'made' as illustrated in the Declaration of the IFNP poll. Therefore, as of 5 August 2022, the Ingatestone & Fryerning Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted by Brentwood Borough Council and the IFNP Adoption Statement has been sent to all statutory consultees and those who requested to be informed of the outcome.
