The Localism Act 2011 introduces statutory Neighbourhood Planning in England. It enables communities to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan for their area and is intended to give communities more of a say in the development of their local area.
These plans will be used to decide the future of the places where you live and work giving opportunities to:
- choose where you want new homes, shops and offices to be built
- have your say on what new buildings should look like
- grant planning permission for the new buildings you want

Linton Neighbourhood Plan
Linton Neighbourhood Plan Examiners Report
The Linton Neighbourhood Plan Proposal has recently been examined by an independent examiner, Mr Nigel McGurk BSc(Hons) MCD MBA MRTPI.
A copy of the examiner’s report can be found by clicking on the ‘Documents’ tab on the left hand side of this page.
The City Council must now reflect on the content of the examiner’s report and issue a formal ‘decision statement’ setting out the Council’s position on
the recommendations in the report and it’s decision on how the Plan Proposal will progress. The decision statement will be issued shortly.
The Plan Proposal
The plan proposal sets out a vision for the future of the village and includes planning policies that will help Leeds City Council to determine planning applications in the area. It also contains a number of projects the Linton community aims to deliver. Overall the plan promotes the conservation of the character and scale of the village and the protection of the open land around. It does not propose any sites for development.
The consultation ended Monday 22nd June (5pm) 2015.
The submitted Linton Neighbourhood Plan consists of the following documents:
• Draft Linton Neighbourhood Plan 2014-2029
• Map of the designated Neighbourhood Plan
• Consultation Statement
• Basic Conditions Statement
• SEA Statement of Reason
• Public Notice (includes locations where paper copies can be viewed)
• Response form
