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
The Linton Neighbourhood Plan, prepared by the Linton Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group on behalf of Collingham with Linton Parish Council has been submitted to Leeds City Council for independent examination. It is the Council’s duty to arrange a 6 week consultation on the plan proposal and to organise an independent examination and referendum.
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.
