The plan has been "put on deposit" at Milton Keynes Council from 24th June until 5th August 2019.
During this period you are encouraged to comment on the plan and we would recommend that you read the Consultation Summary Note which follows the letter below and can be viewed by clicking here.

The steering group and Lavendon Parish Council would encourage any and all positive comments, alongside any concerns that you may have, surrounding the plan with a view to ultimately adopting the plan through referendum.
24 June 2019
In June 2019, Lavendon Parish Council submitted its draft Neighbourhood Plan to Milton Keynes Council, in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Plans (General) Regulations 2012.
Milton Keynes Council now has to publish the neighbourhood plan for a period of consultation after which the Plan and any comments received will be considered by an independent planning examiner.
The Lavendon Neighbourhood Plan will therefore be available for comments for six weeks between Monday 24 June and Monday, 5 August 2019. There is more information about the plan and how to comment in the enclosed Consultation Summary Note.
Please send your comments on the submitted Lavendon Neighbourhood Plan before 5pm on Monday, 5 August 2019 to:
Milton Keynes Council
1 Saxon Gate East
Central Milton Keynes
E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be aware that all comments that we receive will be publicly available and may be included on our website.
The Neighbourhood Plan and accompanying documents are available to view on the Council’s Neighbourhood Planning webpage at http://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/planning-and-building/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning and under Consultations at: http://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/consultations.
A hard copy of the documents is also available to inspect at the following locations:
• Milton Keynes Council Civic Offices, 1 Saxon Gate East, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 3EJ, during normal office hours 9am-5.15pm
• Central Library, 555 Silbury Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 3HL.
• Olney Library, High Street, Olney, MK46 4EF

• In Lavendon, the Parish Council Office at The Pavilion (contact Jane Brushwood, Parish Clerk, for opening hours https://lavendonpc.org/contact-us/)
Following this publication stage, any comments we receive will be passed to an independent person who will examine the plan, to consider whether the plan has met the basic conditions for a neighbourhood plan; that it satisfies the legal requirements for a neighbourhood plan; and to identify an appropriate area for the referendum. As part of that process, the Examiner will decide if the plan should proceed to the Referendum stage, where local residents will have the opportunity to vote on whether the Lavendon Neighbourhood Plan should be ‘adopted’ by Milton Keynes Council, and used in the determination of planning applications in the area.
