Shropshire Council

Market Drayton Neighbourhood Plan

A plan has been prepared by Market Drayton Town Council.

A draft version of the plan was submitted to us in May 2018, which we then consulted on it (known as the Regulation 16 stage) in June 2018. We received a number of representations, attached to this page. 


John Parmiter was appointed as the independent examiner for the plan. It was his role to assess the plan and decide if it has met the basic conditions, and can proceed to a referendum. 

Update - 16 November 2018

In November 2018 we received the final examiner's report into the Market Drayton Neighbourhood Plan. The examiner has concluded that the plan should not proceed to referendum. Following the conclusions of the examiner, we will not therefore be taking the plan to a referendum. The proposed plan cannot therefore be adopted by the council as a neighbourhood plan.

Take a look at the full text of the examiner’s report.
