Neighbourhood Development Plan



21st March 2018  Update - Newport’s Neighbourhood Development Plan is close to being put to referendum.  The Town Council has agreed its proposed version and that has been passed to Telford & Wrekin Council who in turn consider that it should now proceed to independent examination.

An independent examiner will shortly be appointed to; review the document, the evidence used to support its production and test it against planning policy (to check if it is lawful/relevant).
