Please ensure that you conform to the relevant Act and Regulations: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/
Basic conditions for Neighbourhood Plans and orders are:
- they must have appropriate regard to national policy
- they must contribute to the achievement of sustainable development
- they must be in general conformity with the strategic policies in the development plan for the local area
- they must be compatible with human rights requirements
- they must be compatible with EU obligations.
For Neighbourhood Development Orders and Community Right to Build Orders there is an additional requirement:
- They must have regard to the protection and enhancement of listed buildings and conservation areas.
- In order to consider the requirements to be compatible with EU obligations, two further basic conditions are set out in regulations. They are that a plan or order must not have a significant adverse effect on a European site or a European offshore marine site and where a neighbourhood development order proposes certain types of development, an assessment of the effects of the order on the environment must be undertaken and its findings taken into account.
