Ecton Neighbourhood Plan Information


This is the sub-page for Ecton Neighbourhood Plan.  This page will be continuously updated as the plan progresses and is the place to find information on the key stages of consultation, including how to comment, as well as emerging drafts of the plan and any accompanying documentation.

Information will be uploaded beneath the headings set out below as the plan progresses.

Neighbourhood Area Designation

An application was received for the designation of the entirety of Ecton Parish as the neighbourhood area for the Ecton Neighbourhood Plan. Comments were invited on the application with the final date for responses falling on Friday 12 December 2014. Following the close of the consultation period no objections were received and the parish has therefore been designated for neighbourhood planning purposes.


The details of Ecton's area application and designated area can be found below:
