===New Southwark Plan (NSP) soundness tests===
Only people or organisations who send in written comments by
12th February 2018 saying the NSP is not legal or is unsound for specific reasons, and in the right format, will be able to speak at the Public Hearings if the Inspector invites them. For information on this see
* '''[[Media:Briefing on EIP and soundness 111217.pdf|briefing note on the EiP and soundness tests]]''' produced by the Southwark Law Centre.
* '''[[Media:Philip Waters tips for representations.pdf|tips for writing representations]] '''produced by Council Planning Dept.
===Template for comments===
To help in this process, we
are preparing a template to use to submit comments. This will be an acceptable alternative or complementary to the on-line form on the Council's website, as well as to keep notes of the required details. There are some key aspects that must be followed to have a good chance of your issue(s) being chosen by the Inspector for the Public Hearings and for you to be invited to speak. The template is being designed to capture all this.
We have created pdfs for some parts of the NSP to help them to be found more easily. Ones created so far are:
* [[ |Conservation and Heritage protection from pages 44-45]]* [http://www.southwarkcan.org/nsp_final_version
a pdf forthe Area vision and development sites for each local neighbourhood from pages 94-335]
===How to start===
'''1. AREA VISION(S) & DEVELOPMENT SITES'''
Read carefully the pages for your neighbourhood(s) which contain the Area Vision and all your area's development sites.
- You will find these in pages 94-335 in
the NSP: https:// goo. gl/ c1TjFS
- You can find a pdf from that for your neighbourhood to download and print here: http://www.southwarkcan.org/nsp_final_version
* If you haven't time to read all the NSP policies, see if any concerns of yours fit with the topics in the NSP Contents list on pages 3-7 and look to see what the NSP says about them.
We expect there to be a number of comments across a wide range of policies, and we aim during January to link these where it is useful. These include:
*'''Local economy'''- loss of industrial land, supporting high streets, creative industries, enterprises and small businesses,
* '''Environment '''- extent of tall buildings, protection of heritage, open & green spaces, provisions for flooding, air quality, avoiding fuel poverty
We will also be aiming to link comments on the above where they bring out the impact of the NSP on the following:
