INTRODUCTION TO NEIGHBOURHOOD PLANS
What is a neighbourhood plan?
In 2011 the Localism Act reformed the planning system to enable local people more say in determining how their local areas are developed. This has enabled local groups to work with Town Councils to set out a vision for the places they live, study and work.
This can include identifying where you think new homes, shops, leisure facilities or employment opportunities are to be built and what these buildings should look like within the local area.
A Neighbourhood Plan will give local people an increased ability to influence planning decisions in the local area, and as such will need to be representative of the people that work and live in the towns.
Peacehaven and Telscombe Town Council have already started an early part of this process by having the two towns defined as a Neighbourhood Planning Area, but the Town Councils would like to enlist the assistance of local people within the local community to help ensure that the vision created is one that is representative of the local area.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRODUCING A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
It is not compulsory for Town Councils to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan, however there are a number of benefits which may make developing a Neighbourhood Plan desirable.
 Preparing a Neighbourhood Plan will help the community play a greater role in creating the future of your local area, it can help shape employment growth, housing, education and health provision.
 It will bring local residents, businesses, local groups, landowners and Councils together to share ideas and build a consensus about what
needs to be done in the local community. IT’S OUR COMMUNITY We need to start working out how we want our towns to be developed and what we need to provide for future generations. We need your help to work with the Telscombe and Peacehaven Town Councils to develop a plan which will be used to help make planning decisions in the future.

THE POWER OF NEIGHBOURHOOD PLANNING
Neighbourhood planning is designed to provide a set of tools to help get the right types of development in the right place. It can help provide enhanced local services and capture what is distinctive about the neighbourhood.
 Felpham’s neighbourhood plan protects eight areas of local green space and those spaces have been identified for environmental, recreational or historic significance where only in very special circumstances will development be allowed to happen.
 Arundel’s neighbourhood plan helps support proposals to turn particular disused buildings into office space and helps to support the development of business within the boundary of the market town.
 The small town of Woburn Sands used its neighbourhood plan to support the High Street, it developed a policy to support developments and changes of use in the town centre that promote the vitality and viability of the High Street. Developments outside the town centre that impinge on the health of the High Street, will not be permitted unless in special circumstances.
Neighbourhood Plans are a positive tool in shaping the local area. While they can decide where and what types of development can happen, they cannot be used to prevent development that has already been identified by the District or County Council in their plans. Neighbourhood Plans are a good tool for bringing people together and identifying what community projects people would like to see developed in their area and a good way for town councils to work with residents to identify areas of improvements. Once a neighbourhood plan is adopted then will be used by the planning authority in making planning decisions in the neighbourhood area.
If you’d like to talk to someone about coming to a meeting or helping create a neighbourhood plan then please contact either the Town Manager at Peacehaven Town Council or the Town Clerk at Telscombe Town Council.

Below is a copy of the final tender that was sent to consultants on the 14th July 2017 with a deadline for submission on the 1st September 2017. Scoring by the Steering group will then take place and the preferred option will go to Planning Committees in September for final approval.
3. RECOMMENDATION
To note the report.
4. FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The costs so far are £128.25 (spent on the creation of website and large A1 plans) which will leave £372.75 from the £500 neighbourhood plan funding.
Part of the consultant’s role will be to apply for the pot of £9000 from government to help prepare neighbourhood plans and therefore at this stage there are no financial implications to the town councils.
Peacehaven and Telscombe Neighbourhood Plan
Appointment of Consultants
Consultants Brief.
Project Task
Peacehaven & Telscombe Town Councils are looking to appoint a suitably qualified neighbourhood planning consultant to help in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan. Consultants, should be suitably experienced in spatial planning, planning policy preparation and with a good working knowledge of neighbourhood planning, are required to assist the Town Councils in this project.
Overview
Peacehaven & Telscombe Town Councils have resolved to progress the preparation of a neighbourhood plan under the powers granted by the Localism Act 2011. A Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has been established to oversee the Neighbourhood Plan project. The Steering Group is currently made up of two councillors and nine or so community leaders.
The neighbourhood area has been defined in 2013 as the boundary of the two towns combined. (A Copy of the map is attached). A plan of this scale is considered necessary to enable full consideration to be given to the significant opportunities and challenges facing the towns and to ensure the future comprehensive planning and regeneration of the area.
To date the Steering Group representatives have met with representatives of Lewes District Council to discuss the proposed preparation of the plan. In outline have scoped out some of the issues needing to be addressed. The group have had training on the various stages of the neighbourhood plan and have started to gather some basic evidence on population forecasts.
Lewes District Council has an adopted joint core strategy with the South Downs National Park Authority. Both of these authorities will need to play a role in the forthcoming plan development of the plan, as will Brighton & Hove City Council who border the neighbourhood plan area and East Sussex County Council who are responsible for the highways in the area.
It is anticipated that the Neighbourhood Plan preparation process will be carried out with reference to the necessary adopted plans, and will take approximately eighteen months for production of submission draft. Consultants are requested to submit a planned programme of work to demonstrate how this could be achieved and identify any risks and/or impediments to achieving such a timescale.
The Town Councils have initially set a budget of £6000 to help cover costs associated with the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan, including consultant costs, but will be expecting consultants to apply for grant funding from Locality in the first instance to help meet those costs.
Consultancy Requirement
Peacehaven and Telscombe Town Councils are seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced consultancy to:
1. To scope out main issues and undertake visioning exercises.
2. Carry out necessary evidence base preparation to support development of policies, identify if Environmental Impact Assessment or other surveys are needed to be undertaken as part of the neighbourhood plan.
3. Carry out community and stakeholder engagement to inform policy development, test preferred options for policies and set out objectives.
4. Draft a set of robust policies for the issues identified above.
5. Draft the intended Neighbourhood Development Plans and statutory required supporting documents.
6. Assist with the submission of the document to the local authority.
Draft policies will need to draw upon key findings from the evidence base which have helped shape and inform future development issues which are important to local people and businesses. The policies will also need to demonstrate how they will help achieve the draft vision and objectives.
It is important that the plan is easy to read and written in plain English. The plan should be a useful and useable document and understood by the local residents, businesses and organisations. The project plan should identify key milestone/deliverable stages so that members of the public can easily see the progression being made.
It is intended that the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will meet on a regular basis for the duration of the commission and will be responsible for manging the overall direction and progress of the assignment, ensuring that the commission is executed in accordance with the brief and key deliverables are produced to the required quality and within the agreed timescale. Councillors will liaise between the Steering Group and the Councils Committees ensuring that that the process is transparent, and that everything has met governing financial regulations. It is expected that representatives of the consultancy will attend both Steering Group meeting and Town Council meetings if required.
The Tender Submission and Selection Process
The tender submission should be submitted by Friday 1st September 2017 and include the following:
 An outline of your previous experience, suitability for the commission and other NDP projects you have worked on (including reference contacts)

Table 1 outlines the projects identified in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan that may be prioritised for CIL funding. The inclusion of a project or infrastructure type in this table does not signify a commitment from Lewes District Council to fully or partially fund all the projects listed. Allocation of Community Infrastructure Levy income will be agreed through the Council’s Capital Programme. Further the order in the table does not imply any order of preference for spend and Lewes District Council will review this list at least once a year as part of its monitoring of CIL collection and expenditure.
Planning Obligations
Lewes District Council proposes to use planning obligations for site-specific infrastructure such as:
• Site-specific access1 (vehicular, pedestrian, cycle and public transport) improvements (these could be secured through s278 of the Highways Act 1980 in some circumstances)
• Site-specific green infrastructure, including biodiversity mitigation and improvement
• Site-specific Public Rights of Way diversions or mitigation
• Mitigation for residential development within the Ashdown Forest 7km protection zone2
In addition, affordable housing provision and contributions will continue to be secured through planning obligations.
Non-Strategic Infrastructure
Non-strategic infrastructure, identified at a local level, will be expected to be funded through the ‘meaningful proportion’ of CIL revenue that is passed to the Town and Parish Councils. This will either be 15%3 or 25% if there is a neighbourhood plan in place.
1To include provision or improvement of connections to the closest appropriate existing pedestrian, cycling, public transport and road networks, this may not necessarily be adjacent to the development site. To ensure the site is fully accessible by all forms of transport.
2 Mitigation is in the form of Strategic Access Management and Monitoring Strategy (SAMMS) and Suitable Accessible Natural Green Space (SANGS).
3 15% capped at £100 per existing dwelling per annum
