CRTB: Building a Consensus

This piece on a Neighbourhood Plan emerging in Norton and Malton caught my eye, and has some resonance with some of my earlier observations about the Community Right to Build.

The plan has been prepared by a ‘group of individuals’ including five town councillors from Malton but only one from Norton. Malton Council, it seems, has put up £6,500 to pay for a planning consultant to run a public consultation event for residents in both towns, but Norton council doesn’t feel it has been sufficiently consulted before this crucial step is made…and is clearly somewhat put out. In a previous post I talked a bit about the importance of consensus-building in a Community Right to Build project – and properly establishing the principle stake-holders is a key part of the process…as it is in any community-led project.
