All neighbourhood plans in Bassetlaw - Everton neighbourhood plan

Everton Neighbourhood Planning Referendum Postponed

The Everton Neighbourhood Planning Referendum scheduled to take place on 23rd April 2020 will not take place, as we take extra measures to prevent the risk of spreading coronavirus.


Everton Parish Council formally submitted the final version of their neighbourhood plan, and supporting documents, to Bassetlaw District Council for independent examination on the 9 July 2018. Public consultation (regulation 16) was undertaken for 8 weeks, closing on the 27 August 2018. 

The independent examination of the plan commenced in late 2018, including a Public Hearing in January 2019. Following a further consultation in May 2019 to explore proposals made by the examiner, the final Examination Report was published on 28th August 2019. The report concludes that the plan should proceed to referendum, subject to specified modifications. Further to the content of the report, Bassetlaw District Council have issued a response to the Examiner, which is included alongside the Examination Report in the Supporting Documents section below. 

The Examination Report was initially due to be heard at the Full Council meeting on 26 September 2019, but was withdrawn from the agenda following receipt of correspondence from an interested party which required further consideration. On 21 December 2019 an Addendum to the Final Examination Report (see below) was published by Examiner, John Slater, providing clarity on this issue. 

The Examination Report was considered by Full Council on 5 March 2020. Correspondence was received from the same interested party as previously, but following investigation it was not deemed necessary to alter the proposed course of action in response. The Examiner’s Report and Addendum have consequently been approved by Full Council, and preparations will now be made for the referendum, scheduled for Thursday 23 April 2020.
