Southwell Town Council is reviewing its Neighbourhood Plan which was made in October 2016.
The primary purpose of the review has been to correct minor errors and omissions, to update text and maps in the light of developments since the initial Plan, to update the evidence base, to tighten up Environmental Policies in the light of the declarations of climate emergencies made by the County, District and Town Councils. We also wish to translate the Design Guide into Design Codes in response to the recent Government Planning White Paper “Planning for the Future”.
We now invite expressions of interest from qualified Town Planning Consultants who wish to tender for working with the Town Council to check the Review for soundness and to steer the Review through the Consultation stages. The Tender documents will list the tasks in more detail.
The existing Neighbourhood Plan, which includes background to the town itself, may be found on the Newark and Sherwood District Council Website here https://www.newark-sherwooddc.gov.uk/southwellneighbourhoodplan/
Candidates must demonstrate experience of the Neighbourhood Planning Process.
Preference will be given to candidates who live or normally work within 90 minutes travelling time of Southwell and who are familiar with the area.
Please send expressions of interest to The Clerk, Southwell Town Council, The Old Courthouse, Burgage, Southwell NG25 0EP or by Email email@example.com.
The closing date is 12noon on 3rd November 2021
