Progress and News of the Neighbourhood Plan
Here you will find any news of the production of the NP and its progress
19 January 2018Cabinet approval
HDC's cabinet has approved our Neighbourhood Plan and it can now proceed to referendum on the 1st March 2018.
If you wish to read the plan go to the Document Library and view the submission version.
Our plan will be adopted and recieve legal status if more than 50% of people voting are in favour.
So if you wish us to have more influence and control over planning decisions affecting the Parish then vote YES.
A not insignificant benefit is that the % of CIL (Community Infastucture Levy) received by the Parish from developments within the Parish is increased from 15 to 25% when a Neighbourhood Plan is in place. This is particularly significant if and when the development at Houghton Grange goes ahead.
