We met with the then Planning Minister two years or so ago and he clearly said that depending on how far a Neighbourhood Plan had progessed the more weight it would carry and that even if a Local Plan was not in place the NP would take precedence, and to move with all spead to complete our NP. The lack of a five year land bank is always a problem and a Borough/District Council will always have to weigh up the possible cost of an adverse decision at Appeal and possible costs or to grant planning applications for controversial sites !!

I know what has happened in our Parish in the past.
