What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan sets out the vision, aims, policies and proposals for the future development of a neighbourhood. If adopted, the Neighbourhood Plan will be part of the statutory development for the area. This means that the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) and Planning Inspectors will have to take the plan into account when making planning decisions. So a Neighbourhood Plan will carry more weight than, say, a Parish or Community Plan.
Who produces a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Localism Act 2011 says that where there is a Town or Parish Council, then that Council is the qualifying body for leading a neighbourhood plan. So for Allerthorpe it is the Parish Council.
Allerthorpe Neighbourhood Plan now approved
After a lot of hard work, we now have a Final Decision Statement from East Riding of Yorkshire Council, stating that, following the referendum on 12th January 2019, the Allerthorpe Neighbourhood Plan is now part of East Riding development plan.
