Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

Plan Review 2023/24

Consultation Letter from Malvern Hills District Council

Regulation 16 Consultation on the Submitted Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan (Review) 

Monday 8 July 2024 to Monday 19 August 2024


Dear Sir / Madam,

Under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 Hanley Castle Parish Council has submitted the draft Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan to Malvern Hills District Council. In accordance with Regulation 16, the District Council would like to invite comments from organisations and individuals on the draft Neighbourhood Plan.


Hanley Castle Parish Council undertook consultation on an earlier draft of their Plan between February and March 2024. Comments made during this period helped inform changes to the document now submitted to Malvern Hills District Council. The draft Plan includes 25 policies and proposes four allocations. The draft plan review proposes no changes to the policies and site allocations contained within the adopted Neighbourhood Plan, rather, where appropriate, additional details have been added and the Plan has been updated to reflect changes in the Parish. It is the responsibility of Malvern Hills District Council to collate all the responses and forward them on to an independent examiner, who will consider the responses and the Plan documents when assessing whether the Neighbourhood Plan meets the relevant legislation and can therefore proceed to referendum.


Further information, including the submitted Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan, supporting documentation and Response Forms, are available on the Malvern Hills District Council website at Paper copies of the draft Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan are available to view at The Malvern Council House and at Three Kings Inn, Hanley Castle or obtained on request from Malvern Hills District Council or telephone Isabel Roberts on 01386 565 350.


Supporting documents are available on the Malvern Hills District Council website. Comments on the draft Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan should be sent to Malvern Hills District Council by 23:59 on Monday 19 August 2024 using the Response Form. Comments can be emailed to or sent by post to Planning Policy at Malvern Hills District Council, Planning Services, The Council House, Avenue Road, Malvern, Worcestershire, WR14 3AF.


If you have any queries or require further information about this consultation on the draft Hanley Castle Neighbourhood Plan please do not hesitate to contact either Isabel Roberts on 01386 565 350 or Andrew Ford on 01386 565362.


Yours faithfully, Ellie Muckle
