Redesignation of High Lane Village Neighbourhood Forum pdf icon PDF 117 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director for Corporate and Support Services & Deputy Chief Executive.

 

High Lane Village Neighbourhood Forum (“HLVNF”, “the Forum”) was formally designated on 14th September 2017 as the ‘relevant body’ to act in relation to the neighbourhood area of High Lane Village.  In that capacity, the Forum prepared and submitted the High Lane Village Neighbourhood Plan.

 

Following the referendum on 16th September 2021, the High Lane Village Neighbourhood Plan was adopted as part of the Development Plan for Stockport for applications within the High Lane designated area. For as long as it is the designated body, the Forum continues to act in relation to the plan, for example for any review of the Plan, and as a consultee body for applications in the area.

 

In accordance with the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, a designation for the relevant body ceases to have effect after 5 years. This does not affect an adopted Neighbourhood Plan or the designated area to which the Neighbourhood Plan applies.  A body may apply to be redesignated.  The current designation of HLVNF therefore lasts until the end of 13th September 2022. 

 

The Area Committee is recommenended to comment on and note the report.
