July Update


 We may have been a little quiet., This is because the Steering Group has been extremely busy undertaking the detailed analysis of the Consultation Questionnaire data, collating supporting information, and starting to draft the policies to be contained within the Neighbourhood Plan.  We are learning lots on the way with the help of our Planning Consultant, who is making sure we are compliant with legislation.  Once the drafting is complete (expected early June) there are still several stages and milestones to get through complete.



June          – Approval of draft policies by the Parish Council

August      – Statutory bodies’ consultation on the Pre-submission Neighbourhood Plan

October     – Parishioner consultation on the Pre-submission Neighbourhood Plan

December – Submission of Neighbourhood Plan to Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC) and for Independent Examination

Early 2018 – Parish Referendum


We need your support at the Referendum in early 2018.  With the Sheepy Parish electorate voting to accept the Neighbourhood Plan, the Parish Council and HBBC will be able to use the policies for future Parish planning matters.
