Plan updates


The NP covers the period to 2039, after which a new Plan will be required.  Before then we may wish to update the NP, for example if Enfield's Local Plan or the London Plan introduces new policies that would supersede the NP's policies.  Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) explains that the process varies:

  • Minor updates that do not materially affect the NP's existing policies - the Hadley Wood Neighbourhood Planning Forum may request Enfield Council to approve those without the need for consultation, examination or a referendum.

  • Major updates that materially affect the NP's existing policies - consultation and examination are required. A referendum is only required if the examiner finds that the modifications change the nature of the NP.

  • Error corrections - can be approved by Enfield Council with the Forum's consent.
