NDP Last step – parish electors’ referendum
Residents voted 536 votes to 29 to implement the NDP by voting “YES” to the question “Do you want Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Berkswell to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”. The NDP now has legal weight and is expected to be formally made at SMBC’s full cabinet on 5th September 2019. The NDP will not only be used to help decide planning applications but should also help inform any concept plans that SMBC produce as part of their review of the Solihull Local (housing) Plan.

NB Berkswell Parish Council will need to review its NDP by the end of 2024 i.e. 5 years after our plan was made (September 2019).
