After five years of hard work, eight Have Your Say days and countless workshops, we’ve finally reached the Regulation 14 stage! This is your chance to see a very polished draft of the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan and let us know what you think. There are lots of ways to provide feedback, either online, on paper or in person. Read on for details…
The Plan is made up of two parts. Part One, the statutory part, sets out background, vision and proposed policies for the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan Area. Part Two contains the aspirations by the Hove Neighbourhood Forum that cannot be part of a statutory planning document. We have also produced a short summary covering the essential elements.
As part of the Regulation 14 Consultation process, we now invite comments on the draft plan. Please clearly indicate which policy or paragraph you are commenting on. The deadline for feedback is midnight, 11th May, 2019.
If you cannot complete the form online, you can also make an official response by downloading the form, filling it in digitally or by hand, then send back to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Reg 14 FEEDBACK”. You can send by email or post.
We’re also running a series of drop-in sessions and workshops, check the events page for details

See the official consultation response form for full details.
After the consultation period the Forum will produce a summary of comments received and the responses by the Forum.
If you just want to make a quick informal, public comment or observation about the Plan, you can comment publicly at hovestationforum.co.uk/plan
Once it has gone through a number of consultation steps, the Plan will be subject to a local referendum where the question will be:
Do you want Brighton & Hove City Council to use the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan to help it decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood Area?’
We want to ensure there are no surprises before this referendum, so please take a look at the full plan or the summary and tell us what you think. You may also want to check our Frequently Asked Questions, or send us an email with any queries.
Chairman, Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum
