Regulation 16 Consultation – December 2021 – February 2022

The Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to the council on 15 October 2021.

On 24 November 2021, the Mayor in Cabinet agreed that the submission met the statutory requirements for neighbourhood plans, and should proceed to a Regulation 16 consultation and independent examination.

The Regulation 16 Consultation took place between 6 December 2021 and 7 February 2022. The consultation documents are available on this page.

The council prepared a screening exercise to determine whether the Spitalfields Neighbourhood Plan requires a full Strategic Environmental Assessment or Habitats Regulation Assessment.

It concluded that full assessments are not needed at this stage.

Regulation 14 consultation – March – April 2021

A Regulation 14 consultation on the Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Plan was carried out between 15 March and 27 April 2021.

This consultation was organised by the Roman Road Bow Neighbourhood Forum. Due to the change to the boundary of the neighbourhood area, a second Regulation 14 consultation, also organised by the Forum, was held between 5 July and 15 August 2021.

Details of the consultations can be found on the Forum’s website.
